    If the egg has not been incubated, then it sounds like a meat or blood spot that you are seeing when you candle.

    Or if the eggs were shipped you might just be seeing the yolk moving a lot or maybe bubbles.

    Or if it was shipped and it's been very hot, it started incubating along the way?

    It takes at least 4 days of incubation to be able to see something

    and the first thing you will notice when an egg is fertile will be small red veins

    not sure about this dot.

    Quote:Exactly, it's probably 'moving' because you are moving the egg. If it was developed you'd see more than just a dot. It could be an early dead embryo (egg started developing before it was sent), that would make it have just a dot and no veins. A picture would help.
