    The cracked egg looks OK to me. Agree the other looks defunct.

    You were all right on the second one.
    The other I think died. I cracked it open since I didn't see any movement and the veins had turned a dark color. There was a developed chick in there and now I feel awful, but I think it died during development. I was worried about it contaminating the rest if it exploded.

    This is my first batch in the incubator
