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

    I posted it here in hopes that it may help some, know what a fertile egg looks like.jumpy

    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.
