    That does not look like a blood ring to me...but it does appear to be an infertile egg from what I can see. Is there any darkness in the egg? By day 9 you should see a light network of veins and blood vessels and see an embryo moving, *if* the shell is light colored. Darker shells are harder to see in. Give it a couple more days and candle again, if you don't see any signs of life, you can do an eggtopsy or just toss the egg.

    I candled on day on day 4 and thought it might not be viable. Then checked the next day and I saw the network of veins or what I thought to be. This egg and 1 other were scrambled upon shipping. By the way, I'm a first time hatcher. 3 look great and I can see movement. Then there's this one with the red line and another which was also scrambled And its seems to be dark with a dark spot but like I said I did see the vein network a few days ago.

    Give it another day or two. I just got rid of my last egg that I was unsure of yesterday which was day 12, by then I was positive it had died. I cracked it open and sure enough there was a blood ring and a dead 5 day old embryo.
