    Are either of these eggs fertile?

    Obviously one broke as I was opening it but you can still see the spot. Do you think either of them are fertile?

    One of them is an egg out of my fridge that I bought at the store and not expected in any way shape or form to be fertile. The other is one that I am hoping is.

    Bottom one looks fertile...top one, not sure.
    Not that I'm an expert.

    Hopefully they were super fresh because they have to wait a few days before I can put them in the bator. I don't think I want to attempt a staggered hatch for my first one...

    I am surprised you don't know, being from Michigan [​IMG]. Must not be a football fan? I'm a little to the west of you...or south if you're in the UP. Go Packers :)

    Like to watch football, but don't follow it....but I do know where the packers are from.
