This is my first time incubating. i had a temp spike (103 not sure how long it lasted) and my humidity dropped because i didn't have enough water in there. i was pretty sure i killed them but decided to leave them in there for a few more days just to make sure.
Today i candled them (day 3+4) and i see blood vessels in all three.
is it normal for the yolk to roll around in the egg?

The yolk always rotates to the top of the egg. This is so that the developing embryo is always closest to the mothers heat from her breast when she is incubating.
So as you are moving the egg around to candle it the yolk will move also.
