    I am planning on hatching out some of my own eggs, and am hoping my rooster is doing his job. These eggs in the pictures are from 4 different hens, do they look fertile? It's so hard to get a clear picture! I'm looking for a bulls eye, but I'm not sure if that is what I'm seeing. (there is one egg in the first picture that doesn't look fertile to me, but the rest do?)

    Hi the eggs look fertile to me as long as you can see the bulls eye in which I did. I would incubate them .

    Oh and make sure the eggs are warm when you collect them or the embryo could die. should be around room temp[​IMG]erature.
