    So I wasn't able to candle on day 7 (this is my first time incubating/candling) but did so today (day 8).

    Here I have 3 pics, the first one seems okay to me? And I really hope so because the rest of them look the same as it basically.

    The second is a bloodring according to google and should be disposed of?

    And lastly, this egg doesn't seem to have done anything. Is it a lost cause for it? Is it possible to still hatch? Whats going on with it and why does it appear to have done nothing??

    Fertile developing egg, blood ring, clear non fertile egg. You are correct in your assessments. Best wishes for a good hatch. How many fertile eggs are there?

    Wow fast response, thanks!

    Well I have the Brinsea Mini Advance that only holds 7 eggs.

    So 4 are developing, 1 with the bloodring and there are 2 that are non fertile then.

    Can you tell if it is fertile before putting it in the incubator?
    Also can you tell me what it says on that non fertile egg? lol. I got these off ebay..

    Some sort of breeder ID on the egg - I can't quite make it out. No way of telling fertile from non fertile until they have been incubated.
