you have definitely killed it. Please bottle it up and send them all to me for proper disposal.
Secondary fermentation is a bit misleading. Think of your secondary as a clearing tank. The majority of your fermentation is done in the primary. Yes there is sometimes a bit of finishing up going on in the secondary, but most of the time its sole purpose is to let everything fall out of your beer to improve clarity.
