Dumb Newbie Question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey, I know this sounds silly... what does a fertile egg look like??? I have heard of meat spots and blood spots and know that those are not fertile. can anyone give me a pic of one of their fertile eggs? 

 

Thanks! :cool:

Do an on site search on 'bullseye egg fertility' - several helpful threads will appear.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
