    did the egg hatch? Sometimes there is some blood and it's not a good thing but it's not always bad either

    Sometimes chicks will pip through a vein and it will bleed. Most of the time this isn't too big of a problem, unless you can see blood actually flowing or welling up.

    if theres blood in the egg it could mean that it was too humid in the bator but the chick should be fine
