So the other night when I candled I noticed what looked like the start of a blood ring but there was still great veining so I was hoping it was something else. Tonight when I candled it was a definite blood ring and the veining is gone and the chick has passed. I am thinking maybe the severe heat had something to do with it but its hard to know. Makes me sad though since there was such great veining and a beating heart previously. Then the darker egg I am pretty sure is clear, never was fertile. So that leaves one, which seems to be doing well. I hope for poor Millie's sake she gets one baby. Guess it goes to show that even when you have a hen doing the incubating disaster can still strike. I am a bit nervous though because its been hot, she has been on the eggs constantly, but I guess I have to let nature takes it course. I am going to get rid of the blood ring egg but leave the other a bit longer just in case, I am just having trouble seeing since its a dark shell but that gut instinct tells me that its clear. *UPDATE:So I pulled all the eggs and took them in the bathroom to make sure I had the best view/darkness, was planning on chucking the blood ring egg, but there is no blood ring now. So after a certain point does the whole egg get dark from the bloodring? I was totally certain last night it was blood ring and now I don't know what to think. It doesn't smell yet. I hope Millie is smart enough to kick it out if its bad before explosion happens. Well I guess time will tell right?
