    This turkey egg is 7 days old, shows circulation but there are 3 blood spots, will this egg develop or should I cull now?

    same egg, different perspective.. So the three little blood spots don't really mean anything?

    The only thing you can do it wait. I havent really seen them before. Just keep it in the incubator for a little while longer. Do I see veins in the first picture or is that pencil?

    Good visible vessels means that those vessels are supplying a LIVING being with blood supply. A non-viable or expired chick would not have, nor need, working vasculature. Continue the incubation and recheck regularly (I would about every 2-3 days). Carry on!

    Thanks for all the positive feedback. I have 12 turkey eggs and am real exited about them hatching... As well as the 7 ducks, 18 silkies, and a peacock...

    If it's a truly bad egg, as in nasty-bad, you can give it the sniff test and know a majority of the time...[​IMG]
