I am new to incubating and I have been studying a lot on her about it. I have 40 eggs that are at day 9 4 of them have no development should I leave them or trash them. also I have 2 eggs that started to develop but now they have a kid of faded red ring ariund the egg and show no further development. one last thing I noticed that one of the eggs were put in pointy side up is it okay to flip it over or should I leave it? thank you for your help

Dump the clears, give the 'blood ring' eyes a couple of more days just in case, flip that egg large side up, and good luck with the incubation.
thank you I will do that for the blood ring what should I look for in a few days to see if they are alive
It's only an outside chance, but if they are viable in a couple of days you should see veining. A couple of times I have been fooled by what I thought were early quitters.
thank you again you have been a great help to this newbie
I just lost power to my incubator for about 2 hours when I got the power back on the temp in the incubator was about 87 am I screwed or do I still have some viable eggs I am on day 13
no they were not thank you for re assuring me I was super worried
my dad was rewiring the sockets in the house and he turned off the power for a couple mins to install a new plug but when he turned it back on I never thought to check the gfci plug to see if it was back on
