Hi
I have 5 young hens or so I thought as I read when an egg is fertilized there appears to be a sort of bull eyes mark in the middle? Do you think I may have a roo I posing as a hen? Thanks

No. That is the normal single cell nucleus. A fertile egg would have a 'bullseye' development.

Thanks. Good. I think also the fact I have never got 5 eggs usually only 4 a day threw me. However I am grateful for those eggs, they are all silkies and seem to lay a bit more than I expected.
