Further evidence of no Blue breeding.

OBW p.126

"Would it be effective for us to dig up one of the recent inhumations and
release him to warn the others?  The thought recurs.
    If the inhumas' eggs hatched in our climate, would not our human kind
become extinct?  What tricks Nature plays!  If they are natural creatures at
    But they surely are.  Natural creatures native to Green.  Why would the
Neighbors create something so malign?"

Does this imply the eggs can be produced on Blue but will not hatch?
