    i am not real good at this but your egg at 22 days does not look good. when you turn it does the blob turn too? if so that would be the yolk. they will all get an air sack . the egg you broke does not look fertile to me but you say there is a ring around the white spot that usually means it is fertile. there is a water test for embryo but i dont know it.

    Yea,the contrast of the picture isn't.good it's a bullseye with a white spot in the middle. The one on the top unbroken I think they cooked at 112 degrees over night on accident

    you can store the eggs for 7-10 days before the fertility starts dropping. put them in a cool closet with the little end down and shift them a little side to side twice a day 50-55 degrees is good storage until incubation. good luck
