    Hi All,

    My hens just started laying eggs yesterday. Gathered these three and cracked them open. One looked fine, the other two looks as if they had the bullseye. Are they fertile? I don't have a rooster...or at least I don't think I do. Thanks in advance :)

    The top one and left one look fertile. Must have a rooster in there somewhere then.

    Oh darn! I only have eight so it won't be too hard to figure out. They all look like hens to me!

    Both Rhode Island Reds. I've always had a suspicion about the one closest to the camera. She's always been more aggressive. [​IMG]
