    I do get some blood rings that look similar to your second picture, but without all the other veins. It'll be one solid line that goes most of the way around the egg. Sometimes just a half an inch or so line. I've never gotten one that looks like the first picture though, so I found that one interesting!

    If you don't want to crack an egg to see if it is fertile look for a little round dot when you candle. I candle before I set. good luck!
