    I am not sure from the pics ether I want to lean tword yes on the bottom one but the glare and angle are off. I have found that its a pain to take pictures of yolks lol , haveing the pics in sepia or black and white or some such seems to help and takeing pics from sevral angles on one yolks so the glare moves around.

    I always heard that a bullseye means it's fertile (ring around the blastodisc) and if there is no outer ring then it is not fertile. Hard to see the first two pics but the third definitely looks fertile.
