    It's day 14. These eggs look not what I'm used to. Two different eggs. One has a black blob and no discernable veining. And the other isn't moving any more but has great veining.

    The one with the black blob sounds as though it MIGHT be a quitter but can you post photos please and we’ll try to help?

    Are those pics all of the same egg? It does look very dark and there seems to be a lack of healthy blood vessels so it looks to me as if it’s quit recently. If I’m not absolutely certain I leave them in the incy for a couple more days and candle again for any further signs of development or deterioration... don’t leave it much longer than that though, you don’t want it to explode!

    They are two different eggs. The one egg has a clear black line and veins. Hard to photograph.
