    Hi friend.
    I recently received 16 serama eggs from metherland and i live in UK. I understand that shipped eggs do not do well.
    Today was day 5 in incubation and 3 were infertile and 2 had death prominant rings.
    My question is that the rest 11 eggs i could only see 3 eggs embryoe moving slightly and faint heart beating.the rest have spider veins but could not detect a heart beat. Also where spoder veins ends i could see a ring , could that mean that they are dead but the blood ring is on uts way or can the embroye be deceiving and its hard to detect heart beat at this stage.
    Its strange that in my previous hatches i could clearly see heart beating and embryoe moving at day 5.
    I am very sad as i belive that they might be dead and blood ring is on it way to get prominant.
    Any experiences you guys could share

    Huh. It's hard to tell without a picture. I wouldn't give up hope as long as there is veining.

    Thank for your support. I have just googled on egg candelling pic on day 5. It seem to be normal for a ring to form where the veins ends. Lets hope ibgat atleat one baby out. These are very expensive eggs pure malaye serama. I will be heart broken if non hatches
