    Hi there! The first two eggs look really good, but I think I see a blood ring in the last two.

    I have 12 of them in the incubator. All of them but the first two look like the last two..if that makes since.

    I was thinking since the last two pics looked smaller they were dead, but I wasn't sure. they were all put in the incubator the same day so it can't be age difference. So..what exactly is a blood ring?

    I threw six of them out and there was nothing inside. I kept the 6 that looked good.
