    Do you only have the one egg? Candling is way easier when you have other eggs to compare with.

    They are fine. Just candle again on lock down day and remove non fertilized eggs.

    Sounds like you've got a blood ring which means the chick has died.

    I agree with Katy. Sounds like a blood ring, a dead embryo.
