What do you mean by "very fertile"? Was there blood or a meat spot in it? That can happen at any time, in any egg. It's not a chick, just the result of a glitch in the egg assembly line. You don't see it very often in the store-bought eggs because they're candled and the imperfect ones don't make it to the store.
