We have a few eggs that look like this. Is something wrong?
Can you see blood vessels when you candle the egg (it is hard for me to see in the photo)? From my viewpoint, I don't see any signs of life in the egg, meaning it is infertile or the embryo died early on due to wrong temperature, weakness, or other factors.
Yes, there are blood vessels but most of the eggs are evenly developed all the way around. I'm not sure why the undeveloped area dips up on this one side?
Can anyone tell me if this is ok or a sign of some issue? We have veining. It's almost in the shape of a football helmet, where it's lower on the back side of the egg.
Im pretty sure that is what's called a saddled air cell. Were they shipped eggs?
I was wondering if that's what it could be. They were not shipped. They came from 30 feet out my back door.
Is there a possibility they may still hatch?
Yes they should still hatch but just keep an eye on them! Maybe the other hens tossed them around a bit in the nest boxes
