    sorry but i was looking at y eggs today and a lot of them had these cicles around the embryo, it looked like the circles were forming veins though so i dont know if it good or bad? is it a blood circle or normal?

    Hmmm, I would let it go. You can always throw it out later if it is not keeping up with the other eggs. [​IMG]

    It appears to be a blood ring, however, if you want to be sure, then leave it in a couple more days and re-check. The difference in good eggs and that one will be very obvious in another few days.

    Hard to tell I would keep it a little while longer.

    It does show a ring. What day are you on? I normally don't remove eggs before day 10 just in case. How many do you have like this?

    It does look like a blood ring. You could leave it awhile and candle again later but usally when they have blood rings they die.
