    this is a blood ring... may you never see one, but if you incubate enough, you will.

    Quote:Yea, the blood ring shows that the fetus has died and the blood is drawn to the outer edges of the yolk.

    As long as you can see veins, and the spot in the center of the egg, you are fine. They don't always move a whole lot very early on. I set mine last friday night and today was the first time I could see them moving really good. But when the die, you wont see the veins anymore. All the blood gets to the outside edges of the center, that's the blood ring.
