    So, for some reason, no matter what I do, I cant get the pic to become larger. Ill keep at

    I posted it here in hopes that it may help some, know what a fertile egg looks like.[​IMG]

    Hope it turns out OK.

    I finally learned what a fertile egg looks like.
    At first I thought you can tell they were fertile, if there were " red spots " or streaks.

    I was incorrect. I read up on and learned from other BYC pics, what they actually Do look like.

    It is actually quite easy.

    So, I cracked open 2 eggs, and low and behold, right there in the yolks, was a perfect little WHITE circle, with another smaller circle within that.

    A "BULLSEYE " effect.

    I took several pics of an egg laid by my Partridge Rock hen who is paired with a Salmon Favorelle Roo.

    The pic was very bright, so I did some quick sharpening, darkening etc. to show the contrast since it was very faint.

    The pic is kind of small , but I think it shows the Bullseye pretty well. The spot is right below the camera flash in the center.

    So, please understand that this is NOT the true pic of my egg. lol..
