    Your good egg/bad egg assessment is dead-on. [​IMG] The first egg has a sizable air cell in the end but it should be fine. If the contents of that egg start to move very fluidly inside the egg, it may have stopped development, but if the embryo/yolk sac appears to be staying mostly put when you tip the egg you should be A-OK. The blank eggs are infertile. The spidery veins in the one are a good sign of early development, but the red "ring" around the one egg is bad news. I think I read somewheres that the red ring (sometimes it is only a line) is a sign of bacterial growth in the egg, and that one's a goner. But your first egg looks real promising. Here's to a good hatch! [​IMG]
