Default P. chinensis egg development

How do I tell if P. chinensis eggs are developing? I want to sell them but I don't want some unlucky buyer to get duds.

Wait a week, if they have become cloudy or been attacked they are probably duds. If after a week they are still clear, change shape/ C shaped you know they are viable. Keep in mind the first round of eggs can have a high failure rate and even cloudy eggs can still be developing (especially with paramesotriton).
