    I have 4 chickens that were all sopposed to be hens. But today I cracked my egg and noticed a brown thing was in both of her eggs. It was squishy. Could this mean the eggs are fertilized?[​IMG]

    No. That is a blood or meat spot. Not a big issue. If it bothers you, pick it out of the egg before cooking it.
