Neat set-up! If the two eggs don't look bad don't give up yet. I never toss an egg unless it looks like a science project that's gone bad! If you candle it you should be able to tell if the baby formed or not and if you gently press one end in just a bit it may move if it's still alive. It is possible they died at some point in development or were too weak to hatch for some reason.
You could try slitting the egg, very carefully so you don't puncture membrane, yolk, or limbs, and if the baby is alive but unable to slit the egg itself it may be able to hatch this way. If you do this, don't remove the baby from the egg just make the slit. Cuticle scissors or exacto knife work real well for this.
Congratulations on the babies and hopefully you will be making the announcement again in about 3 months with the next clutch!
