    Hi just realised that actually we are on day 5 not 6 I'm new to this game! So excited and nervous to know if they might be fertile if anyone could let me know what they think I'd be so grateful [​IMG][​IMG]

    That egg is definitely fertile. Whether it is alive or not is up to you to tell. By about day ten, maybe sooner, you should be able to see a dark spot moving around the egg. Being these are dark shelled Maran eggs, it may actually take longer.
