    I put three eggs in my incubator and on day 3 I candled the three eggs and one of the eggs has a good embryo with veiens but the other two just have a big mass in the middle of the yolk with no veins. Does this mean they are going to turn into an embryo or is this bad?

    It's early to be candling. You'll probably see more if you wait until day 7. good luck.

    Patience young padawan!!

    I recently had a chick hatch from an egg that had a blood ring, if I had tossed it I would have missed out on a perfectly good chick from good lines. . . . . .give it time, you will know soon . . . . I don't toss until close to lockdown ( unless I need the room) . . . .good luck.

    Wait a little longer and candle on day 9-10 , I know it's hard to wait.
    Good luck!
