    Does this look like a blood ring I have two eggs which look like this. Sorry for the bad photo quality. There is also no veins in it and it is about a week old today. Thank you in advance! 20190421_091158.jpg

    Yes that seems to be a blood ring. If there are no veins except the red line it is dead I'm afraid. By a week into incubation there should be a very obvious embryo with a visible beating heart.
