I just cracked this egg open today and I did a double take, it looks like the photos I've seen of fertile eggs...but I thought I had only girls! Please tell me I'm wrong!

It's fertile. I guess you better start posting pics so we can find the culprit. HAHA Sneaky little devil!

If he is that good at hiding, I think I'd keep him.

Really! Have you added any hens to your flock lately? A bred hen *can* be fertile for a month or a bit more. It's more common for them to be fertile 7-10 days after the last breeding, but it's been seen before.

If you haven't added anyone in the last month I'm gonna have to go with stealth roo, otherwise we're all crazy 'cause that's a fertile egg.

It must be our EE, Chewey. These were taken about a month ago:

The only other culprit would be our BA who looks very female to me:

we're not allowed to have roosters in SF. I'm so sad.

I didnt' know what a fertile egg looked like - so I am glad to know! Sorry about your rooster - hopefully you can rehome him somewhere where he is allowed
