    i have eggs in the bator put in the 23rd, and i candled them today and saw a red line in sum, is that normal, heres a pic, not very clear but u can see the line. the faint black lines is just writting on the egg, i wrote the dates on the eggs, im concerd about the red line, its hard to see in these eggs because they are tan shelled, i kinda photo shoped thos photo to make the line stand out, is it a vein im seeing? cant be a blood ring because it dnt go all the way around the yolk and it stays i one spot...

    Im afraid I have to agree with Skitz and say thats a blood ring. Looks like the embryo developed for a few days then died. Im unable to see any active blood vessels.

    Sorry to have to give you a negative reply.

    Im afriad they both look like blood rings by now they should be looking like the picture in my avatar which was a goose egg at 7 days.

    You should see a central red area with blood vessels radiating outwards if the egg is viable [​IMG]

    Does look like a blood ring.....You could let it go for a few days to be sure if you feel the need though......

    if i dnt see a change should i through them away? will the contaminate the other eggs? these to have been sitting by each other from the time i put them in the bator. i have an egg right by them thats forming perfectly, will they spread germs to this egg?
