    This is our first time hatching eggs. I know veins are normal and a good sign, but these just look so... pronounced. This egg looks different than our other developing eggs and I haven't seen a picture online quite like this.

    Does this egg look ok?

    For pic comparison's sake, here's another of our eggs that shows the classic blood ring and is almost certainly bad.

    That looks like a blood ring to me but I would leave it in for another week just to be sure. Sometimes they just grow in strange ways. Are these shipped eggs or are they local?

    That is a blood ring, the egg is no longer viable I'm afraid.
