    This is a Tolbunt egg day 6. All of the eggs have veins that look like they are running downward. Is this normal? The other breeds in the incubator have more normal looking veining. Any opinions?

    It looks to me as though the veins are recessing and pooling back into what may likely become a blood ring. I would say they are quitters, but I would wait until at least day 10 to be sure, if there is no foul smell coming from them.

    That is what I was afraid of. I'm cursed with Tolbunts. I can't seem to hatch them for anything.

    Just make sure that the pointy end is down at all times. Veining is good. [​IMG] Where is the black thing that all the veins come from? They should all be growing away from the "fetus" , a pea size dark item in the egg
