    Bottom yolk is definitely infertile. Top one fertile? I'm hoping my young rooster is learning his job. Even though he's never crowed yet. Could be wishful thinking on my part. Your thoughts on the top yolk appreciated.

    The bullseye forms as the egg ages. That's fertile and fresh.

    I'm going to incubate what I collect today and this weekend. We'll know in 1 week for sure. I agree there isn't a clear bullseye. But it's larger and different from what I've collected before.
