Day 7 Incubation Update

I got a little impatient and I candled on day 5 but it gave me an idea of what to look out for.

One egg appeared to be clear (aka infertile, but that isn’t always the case) and two looked as though they had a blood ring. Blood rings are the result of the embryo beginning to grow but, for whatever reason, died and the blood pooled in a ring. Now, some people might toss these eggs out no matter how early it is. I know better and I’ve made that mistake. So these eggs will go on to be candled at day 7 to find out if they actually are ‘dead’. If they start to ooze (literally), they’ll be tossed before day 7.

My camera refused to cooperate with me, so I ended up taking a few short videos, which you can see I pulled them all together below. I also added in some general information, but I suck at speaking on camera.
