    Today is day 8 for my 4 bob White Quail eggs. When I candled them 1 had noticible blood veins, 2 had a small black dot with a dark colored mass around it, and 1 had nothing. Does that mean that only 1 egg is working?

    Black dots could be eyes.

    Sorry, I should have clarified. Glowing eggs are duds, anything else is a possible.

    Thanks. I am keeping my hopes up for 1 of the 4 to hatch.
