    OK, I don't think it is. The obvious ones I've had are a distinct, almost strait line, circling the near center of the egg. Candle again in a couple of days and you'll know for sure. The vein growth looks normal, to me.

    That looked fine, blood ring the web of veins you are seeing will all settle into a one solid ring around the egg.
