    Hi. I am writing because I am on day 8 of incubation (white bantams silkies) and I found what appears to be a blood ring. The odd part to me is the embryo is still really active and it looks like a quarter size blood spot on the inside. So my question is. Is this a blood ring I am seeing and if so can the peep still make it??? Any advice I will highly appreciate being I am newer at this. Thanks so much! [​IMG][​IMG]

    That is not a blood ring, that is normal veining. You have a live embryo in there!
