    is this looking okay? Only one to get veins and looks like there's something moving around inside

    I have an egg that looks just like your blood ring but wasn't sure as the ring runs long length wise where my book says it will run short length on the shell. Humm...

    great pics and explanation.

    is a blood ring good or bad?

    A blood ring means the egg started developing, then died. [​IMG] And it can run lengthwise like that one, but mine generally go around the middle. I give it a few days more in the incubator to make 100% sure, but I am pretty good at seeing them now.

    I believe you are right on all eggs BUt I would not throw them out! I had an egg I thought was a blood ring and a white egg that i saw no development in Was going to toss them and changed my mind AND GLAD I did because they are due to hatch anyday and they have babies in them! I dont throw any out till I smell a stinker or we are going into lockdown and there is still no movement in them!

    Good luck!

    I always wait a few more days, just to make sure they aren't late bloomers. [​IMG]

    Yes you are correct on all three eggs! Like the others say, I usually put those back in the bator for a few more days and see if they progress any further. They usually do not!
