i'm not sure what happened here. Is this a saddle? The eggs came from a local breeder less than 10 minutes away from me.

2/14 chicken eggs looked like this with no air cell and is that a blood ring near the bottom of the shadow? i'm so new at this, i have no idea.

Your air cells look MUCH better!! Keeping fl.gif you get a good hatch!!

Runners and chicken look fine to me... the little saddle shape sometimes happens, if the development looks good then no need to worry...

For hatching, I shoot for a steady 65% humidity...

As for the blood ring, it might be, is hard to see... can you take pics candling from the top and side? If you are not sure, just leave them in... if they don't stink, there isn't a worry about exploding... if any ever stink, and believe me you can tell the difference from a stinker and egg smell, pull and toss it right away...

these are different views of the two chicken eggs that looked different. top one looks bloodier now, and the bottom one the air cell looks like it has fluid leaked into it? it doesn't look hollow like the other eggs. nothing smells, i'm going to remove the one that's bloodier now, and leave the other one a while longer.

Yep, top looks like a blood ring... bottom, I am not sure but looks either infertile or very early quitter... as long as it doesn't smell or seep, is ok to leave... if any seep liquid outside the shell, remove those too...

i think it went well. 12/14 runners, 10/14 malines (a couple of those quit early though). the half saddled egg didn't hatch. 

 

now that it's a bit warmer and dryer out, i've been needing to watch the humidity more to make sure it doesn't go too low. next time i buy an incubator, i'm going to look for something that's better at automatically adjusting the temperature. the ether wafer thing is a pain in the rear.
