Boiled dry chickpeas, in the frig for 5 days, still good?

I took some dry chickpeas and boiled them with the lid on to cook them on tuesday. They have been sitting in the frig for five days. Are they still good to use? They dont have any smell but I wasn't sure how long they typically last for. I just drained them, washed them a few times and put them on a low boil over the stove. Any ideas?

    1. Officially, the answer is

      If they don't smell or show signs of deterioration, I would eat them a few days after that. Beans smell bad when they go off.

        1. I think they should be okay as long as they don't smell or taste fermented.

          1. i would drain them dry them.. toss them with oil and season them with some herbs de provence and bake them in the oven at 400 for about 20 minutes....
