    i'm on day 10 and ive candled a few times and these two have had me worried. one had started and i could see the veins and the past two days the veins went runny and arint there and the liquid wont move in egg its gone soild like a hard cooked this a blood spot? the other one i see no yellow or dark area in the egg its all clear except a bloody line around the middle is this a blood spot? if i take the chance and let them go to day 14 will they explode? here are the best pics i could get candling hopefully they will give you an idea.

    That really is hard to tell but it does look like a blood ring. At day 10 I usually see a lot more veins and such. I would get rid of those if were me.

    First one looks to have a bloodring developed...the second I would shine the light down from the top before throwing or getting rid of it to make sure nothing is in there...I candle from the top down....
  4. I have to tell you...I had one that looked just like that and I was certain it was a bloodring. I almost chucked it but decided to keep it a while long as it wasn't weeping. It is now pipped and will probably hatch tonight!

    It will eventually declare itself one way or the other.

    Looks like blood rings to me as well. If you want to keep it for a few more days and check again on day 14. You should see an embro by then. Be aware that they can go bad quickly so if you detect even the slightest strange odor, get rid of it.
