    The electricity went out again, these eggs are about on day 4. Can you see a blood ring or does this look normal? I can see the embryo and a faint circle surrounding it.

    If you look close enough you should also be able to see some fluttering of the heart. Remember that for the most part if they loose heat it doesn't mean they're done for. It'll just cause a delay in the eggs hatching.
