    On a positive note, still have eight turkeys, six ducks, the peacock I'm just not sure of and the silkies have only been in four days..

    I agree all those are non-viable eggs. There are no discernible vessels which indicates there is no living being inside that would need blood supply. Probably still within normal loss range.

    They look like blood rings to me . But id leave them for a few more days. I had a duck egg that had a ring like that and it ended up being the first to hatch:thumbsup If it shows no signs of development in 2-3 days toss em.
