    I have a silkie egg that is on day 9. I can definitely see embryo movement. But there is a blood ring and it does not have robust blood vessels. It does not stink. Is there any hope for this egg or should I chuck it now?
    Thanks

    On the MN prairie.
    It won't hurt to give it a few more days and candle again. There should be definite difference in development. Are you sure there is movement and not just the inside of the egg sloshing around?

    Even less normal blood vessels today and darker ring. Into the trash it went. Thanks.
