    From what I understand..My ladies lay fertile eggs (I mailed some and about half hatched)

    I'm not sure which part is which.
    This is one of yesterdays eggs..

    I did learn about 5 years ago..Webcams get great closeups! (I was trying to take pix of jewelry I was selling [​IMG]

    Sorry, I cant tell that your eggs are fertile or not, too much glare. Cant see the blastodisc (called a blastoderm if fertile) The next to the last picture of the chalazae doesnt show the blastodisc and all eggs have a chalazae (that cord-like thing). Wasn't sure if you meant that it was fertile because of that or not.
