    Ok, being new with hatching my own eggs.... what does a blood ring look like(I know, it's a stupid question), with candling the egg...what would I see? I've only started incubating yesterday.

    ooooo thank you very much....eeeek hope I don't get any of those blood rings. So, if I do, should I get rid of the egg/s that have it?

    Yep, it means the embryo has died. Those are definite tossers.
