    Now, will you be able to stop hatching once these are done? That's the real question. [​IMG]

    I candled last night, out of 42 , 25 viening, 17 clear, all went back in.
    question. will bloodring eggs have veins?
    and if the air cell moves really easy, like in water, is this egg going to do anything?

    Quote:a bloodring means veins started, the embryo died and the blood drained out of the veins.

    Quote:You never can say for sure. Wait 7 - 10 days to candle. Try not to handle them too much. The less you touch them the better the outcome.

    Good luck!

    will i just had to check those ones that were clear and those 4 that might be bloodrings. well 15 got kicked out, 13 clears and 2 bloodrings, the others 27 had movement [​IMG] . i opened the rejects and those that looked like bubble in water looked like scrambled eggs (uncooked) they must have had a rough ride, and one of the bloodrings was smelly i'm glad i got it out.
