    Sorry the pic isnt all that well. You can see the chick but there is a thin blood ring going across the egg...

    if your not sure then leave it be i killed one this week by guessing. it was so dark like yours too early so i chucked it out cracked it and it must of being developing before i had it oops.

    I have removed 4 yesterday they had a definate dark blood ring and a 7 day chick in but you could clearly see no movement so these did come out. i guess it gets harder as they get older?

    what day is this one?

    its on day 12 thats okay. Ive had a bobwhite quail egg do that to me so its no biggie.. Its a bit upsetting but that's mother nature for you and you can never win that war with her.. Just gotta try , try and try again .... [​IMG]
