I was turning them once a day and the first laied eggs were about 11 days old before they went in the bator.

Thank you for your help.

11 days isn't that bad. A lot of people won't set eggs older than 7 days, but it's recommended to use eggs 10 days or under. Still you really don't see a major decrease until 2 weeks. I wouldn't think it was that.  Are the eggs that are showing the blood rings located in the same area of the incubator or are they spread throughout the incubator?

Ok, so it's probably not the storage then.

Their spread out the incubator.

Ok, you're shutting out all my theories...lol

I can't think of anything else. The only other thing I can think of would be breeder stock and nutrition.
