    Just candled, and I found these two problem eggs. The porous egg was

    laid by my 'newbie' layer, and has veins and is developing nicely. But

    then I found this egg, with a huge blood ring. You can't see that much

    from the picture, but beside from the blood ring, the egg looks weird

    in the middle, so the embryo is deffinatly no longer alive. I couldn't get a

    picture of the entire blood ring, because it goes all the way around the egg,

    and ends at the air sac. I'm thinking about cracking it open before I throw it out, but

    I don't want the egg to explode on me...Heres some pictures:

    Theres actually veins and development in this egg, which we did not expect
    'cause the mom and dad are really young.

    And there it is cracked open. You can see the little chick, and the blood ring.

    And for the heck of it, heres a picture of one of the eggs that are doing great. [​IMG]

    Blood rings are caused by bacteria. The blood ring egg needs to be disposed of.
