    It is day 22 now and only one good egg was left at lockdown. I now see no movement and bright blood spots near the air sack edge. Is this like a blood ring and bacteria related?

    That is weird, can you see any shadows moving? Anything to think it's moving?

    Could the yolk sac be ruptured?

    I opened it. He was in pip position. But did not pip. Was covered in a clear beige tinted jelly. The yolk sac was almost gone. Only a small bulge left to absorb. A lot of jelly inside. His head was not under the wing but was pointed up. Just not far enough to pip.
