Can an egg have a blood ring that has not been in the incubator? I candled eggs I was going to set and found a couple like this.

It's the out-line of the air cell, Some you'll be able to see and some you wont, A blood ring would be more in the middle like this

I don't know what happened but I saw multiple post from me and I deleted one and they all went away. Anyhow, I feel better now. They have not been in the incubator yet. Just putting them in today. That one was 4 days old.

If they haven't even been in the incubator then there's no way for a blood ring to appear, The blood ring shows up normally when an egg that's at least 4 day into incubation has started forming but then suddenly died.
