Are these eggs fertile?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So on Teusday I'm planning to set a clutch of eggs in the bator! My rooster has been with his new haram since Thursday (I had to take him out Friday so there was no breeding that day) and these are some of the eggs I collected this morning! I think they are fertile but I wanted to double check with the experts- you guys! Fertile?

a good rule of thumb is 2 weeks together . There is a lot of light reflecting on the eggs making it hard to see but I dont think they are fertile yet.  There should be a ring around a dot.

X2. Very hard to see, but I think #1 and 3 are not, and #2 might be but not sure. Good luck!

Is it Fertile or Infertile?

To check the fertility, simply break an egg in a bowl. Find the white spot on the yolk. If you do not, use a spoon to gently flip the yolk over until you find it. Bulls eye look is fertile.

 

  BOTH of these below ARE FERTILE!!

YES FERTILE!!
