Have any of you noticed this phenomena. When the egg is alive, the veins are very visible. If the egg quits, the veins aren't as dark and visible.

I noticed this on a few that looked like they stopped developing.

Yes! I believe I read somewhere that when an egg quits, all the vessels draw together to form the blood ring?
