We think she was sitting for at least a day/night before I got them. I candled today (allegedly day 6). Egg A looks textbook perfect to me. Great veining, obvious embryo spot, good air cell. Egg B is questionable, a dark mass sinks as I turn the egg, but I see veining in there. Giving that one a few more days-a week. Egg C however has a very clear dark red vein, I’ll attach a video if I can. I’m not sure if it’s the beginning of a red ring or if he’s still ok. I’m hand turning 5x a day, still air incubator at 25% humidity for now.

    This egg looks to have quit I'm afraid. I can't see any active veins in there.

    Here’s a video. Red vein moves along the shell.

    Boo. Okay, thanks for your help. I’m going to leave him in for a few more days and see if there’s a change just in case. Thank you.

    That one is questionable, but I leave "iffy" ones in (if not obviously gone) until the next candling - you can tell for sure by then.
