    This is my first time incubating so I have NO idea what I am looking at. I have 3 eggs like this. It moved with the yolk. The air sac looks good. It does (as you can see) seem to reach in a bit from the outside of the ring in? [​IMG]

    This is the only 1 I could get a good pic of. What do you think? This is day 4 pic.

    Way too early to toss, I've hatched for years and I never judge an egg til day 7 or 10. I'd leave it and mark the egg with a question mark. Wait to candle again.

    I candle from the big end down into the egg, never on it's side.

    No I won't be tossing anything until day 14. At least...

    Thanks for the info! It is hard to get a handle on it to candle from the top. What do you use to candle?

    I am using my hand...and an led flashlight!

    Thanks!!

    Does a blood ring move with the yolk or does it stay put?

    That looks like a blood ring to me...how many days have they been in the incubator? If you are unsure, I'd stick it back in the incubator and wait 3-5 more days and check again. You might want to mark it with a question mark, so you know shich one to double check! [​IMG]

    Good question. I am new at it all too. I just decided unless it seeped or stunk, I'm so new it's staying in there period.

    Good luck. [​IMG]

    looks like a blood ring to me too, but I would wait a few more days. Then you will know for sure.
