    I was a little nervous. So I didn't candle on day 7. Will be day 9 tonight. My first ever with ?? fertility on eggs.

    So I got
    2 blood rings. ( thats bad huh?)
    2 ??
    3 with big blobs that float in their when i tip them. Probab. gonna blow up.
    And I got 1 little very frisky kicker in that big egg. Yippee.

    So I will wait a few more days than decide on the other eggs. Any advice would be very appreciated.

    Edited to add 2 good eggs and 1 blood ring.. yipee

    Bloodrings are bad correct...if your sure they are bloodrings take them out of the bator...the ?? mark ones I'd put a ? mark in pencil on them and wait til the next candling date...3 blobs don't sound promising but put a ? mark on those and candle again on the candling date...Sounds like you have a good egg so good luck...

    yup one of the blood rings has a dime size dark dark blob in the middle. I was afraid to touch it. Looks like a target practice thingy with a bullseye in the middle.

    Thats not sounding like a bloodring to me but an embryo...does it swim or have veining around it?...My bloodrings have always been a circle clear around the inside shell...

    nothing moved at all. I can't see veins. Because the eggs are dark. But that dime thing is very dark. I will look again
