    some of my eggs seem to have a blood ring but they are moving and the chick is very much alive. Is this possible?

    Interesting! Could it be that the veining is a certain way that makes it look like a blood ring?
    Just guessing!

    If it's truely a blood ring there can't be a live chick in the egg.

    if your hatch day is this coming wensday the egg should just about be full of chick, and should not look like a blood ring in there.

    the others that are due wednesday you can only see a few veins and then the air pocket. And the veins are like a centimeter, if that from the pocket. Thanks, -Jay
