    I'm pretty sure I know the answer, but I thought I'd check here anyway.

    We won't be hatching eggs until the spring, but in the meantime I want to be checking to make sure they are fertile for when the time comes. So today I cracked open three eggs to make french toast, and took photos.

    What does it look like, are some or all of these fertile? Thanks!

    Thanks! I definitely think the first and the third are, but the second one is giving me pause.
