    No, blood spots mean a capillary burst along the tract. Has nothing to do with fertilization at all.

    No. I think there was a thread on recognizing fertilized eggs. You need to find the donut ring to see it it's fertilized [​IMG]

    No, it does NOT indicate fertilization. And tell the grandkids to stop inspecting the eggs before they are cooked! [​IMG]
