    Looks like #2 has a blood ring and it is dead. The 1st and 3rd one never developed at all so probably wasn't fertilized to start with. Sorry!

    I am sorry... it looks like egg 1 and 3 are clear for sure.

    I thought 2 had a blood ring too, but maybe wait on it for a few more days at least. Sometimes it is hard to tell in pictures. Did you see a chick moving?

    I always say, if you're not 100% sure, give it another day or so.......I hate to judge from a photo, but I'd say #1 & 3 are empty, and #2 could possibly have a blood ring and dead embryo......

    yeah i cracked open 1 and three and nothing kinda gross I was holding my breath. Yeah number two Ill give it tell lock down kinda sucks.. [​IMG] Im not mad but Im upset though but thats normal . I dont blame the person who sold me the eggs. I think next time Ill get them from a hatchery instead of off EBAY...

    I might try again. Hey at least I have my quail eggs so they'll be my babies lol. well ill keep checking thanks everyone... Yeah with number two I dont wanna crack it open and kill a possible still alive baby then I would feel HORRIBLE.. All I can do is try try and try again.. thanks everyone for the support.. Just gotta move on huh [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure I've never seen anyone guarantee that 100% of their shipped eggs would hatch. They might guarantee you all fertile eggs, which is definitely different. And if they actually guaranteed you 100% hatch rate, please direct me to them because they clearly need some educating.

    One and three look clear to me. At day 11, they should be *very* obviously darkening and you should very easily be able to see veins. Heck, I can see the veins by day 5 usually. If you see #2 moving, then it may be alive but it looks 'behind' where it should be to me.

    EDIT: Oh, and don't be afraid to buy from eBay. I've gotten some nice eggs from there, but some people have off days. Just make sure you do your homework on the seller before buying next time.
