    Anyway, I believe I have two dead eggs. [​IMG]
    2 out of 12 isn't bad.

    The two eggs, look like this:

    with the ring around it. I know its a bad pic it was taken with my phone. The embyro doesn't move AT all and it doesn't weigh as much as the other eggs. I have only weighed it in my hand but I can tell it's not as heavy.

    Should i toss them before something happens?
    I feel like i should so that it doesn't contaminate the other eggs.
    (With my luck it will)

    Looks like a bloodring to me. I had a few last year. What day are you on? If you have still some time you could wait a few more days. Is the airsac gettinging bigger?

    What day are they on? I've made the mistake of thinking it was a blood ring when it wasn't, so you might wanna be careful :D

    I am on day 12 yesterday when i candled last. today is 13.
    the only thing that ponders me is that the two egg's embryo's hasn't moved liked the rest of the eggs do
    and doesn't weigh as much as the others.
