What does the blood ring mean, other than I am not getting anything out of that egg? I have a turkey egg and a silkie egg right next to each other in the egg carton that have blood rings. Well, the turkey egg has a blood line, not really a ring, but obviously not developing like the other ones. Is there a factor that causes the ring, or is it just because of the stage that they quit in? The turkey egg quit long before the chicken egg, because the line has been there when there wasnt anything noticeable in the chicken egg. The other eggs around them are developing just fine.
