    The black dots swishing around is a good thing [​IMG]

    Do not give up on eggs with a ring too soon. I have had several I thought were blood rings and seemed to have lost their veining, but because I had little experience I did not want to throw them out. About half of those eggs were dead, the others developed anyway. You do want to keep a closer eye on suspicious eggs though as they can explode if the embryo really is dead. [​IMG] That would be gross, lol.

    ETA: I did not see your second picture the first time ... are there multiple swishing dots in the egg? Or are that eggs dots not swishing?

    Do they wiggle on their own, or float around when you move the egg? Was it shipped? It is possible that the air cell is ruptured. I have had several shipped eggs with air bubbles floating around in them from a ruptured air cell.

    they was shipped (and none cracked) the dots will move when u move the egg more easily but they r not very stable when u hold the egg still.

    It does sound like the air cells were probably ruptured in those eggs. I usually set them anyway because I just cannot help it, lol ... but I do not think I have ever had one like that make it.
