Hello BYC forum! I'm new here, so please forgive me for starting a new thread! I couldn't figure out how to post on the existing thread! I have six chickens that are 31 weeks old this weekend. So far the most eggs I have seen in a day is 5, but not consistently, so I'm not completely positive about who is laying. I also think that my eggs may be fertile, compared to what I've seen in pictures on this site. Below are pictures of my chickens, and a pic of one of the egg yolks that looks fertile to me. Can anyone weigh in on this? Oddly, none of them are crowing, which is kind of unusual for a rooster at 7+ months old, right?! Here is one of the eggs I cracked open today: I called my local feed store and they said that this egg is not fertilized, that the white spot is likely a calcium deposit.... that if it were fertile it would have a blood spot. But this forum and other sources say otherwise and that a blood spot isn't indicative of being fertile so I don't know what to think! Please help! Thanks!
