    I candled my eggs and noticed one of them had a ring around it. What does a bacterial or blood ring look like?

    If you do a search on here you will find pictures or google it. I have not seen one but it is quite a red ring going around.

    Does any ring on an egg mean its not going to hatch when you candle it??

    Please be cautious-I removed one with what looked like a ring and a blood spot last night (you can see my thread title candled day 7 & 10 & culled) and it had an embryo that I'm not sure if it died or I killed it by cracking.

    bacterial rings and blood rings are the same and an egg showing one will not hatch.
