Hi. I started some eggs (20) on feb. 27th, I candled 6 tonight and three had movement a little black dot about the size of pencil eraser and two had veining that I could see. One had a ring all the way around the center and showed some veining the ring looked approx. about an eighth of an inch thick, is that a blood ring? should I cull it? This is my first attempt at hatching I can definitly see how addictive it could be. So amazing.
Oh and one more question, the girls that layed the eggs are RR and my rooster is a Dominique black with strips, what will the chicks look like, him or her?
Thanks again for your answers and patieince with all my questions

Congratulations! I think what you described in the one egg is definitely a blood ring. If you see a very distinct ring, then you are correct. If you're not quite sure, then it's always a good idea to give the egg a few more days before you throw it away....

It's so exciting!
