My great-aunt was talking chickens with me recently, and said a couple of things I hadn't heard before. So I've been doing some research online, and can't find anything to support what she said. So now I'm wondering if it's a wive's tale. Here's the scoop: 1) If there's a white spot in the yolk: It's been fertilized. Good to eat. 2) If there's a brown spot in the yolk: It's a meat spot. Good to eat or can fish it out. 3) ***If there's a black spot in the yolk: It's a parasite. Not good to eat. Fish it out or throw out the whole egg.*** Scenario #3 is the one I'm wondering about. What do you think? Is there any truth to that?
