    If the egg dies in the process of incubation will you still see the veins even if its dead?

    The veins recede creating a blood ring.

    In early quitters you will usually see a blood ring or partial blood ring, in later quitters often you'll see a black blob floating in a fuzzy clear egg. In late quitters it's harder to tell. Areas where you could previously still see veining will become blurry clear, no movement, just basically a dead look.

    If there are still veins, there is still hope, for the most part.
