    I've had a new rooster for a few weeks, do these eggs look fertile? I haven't witnessed any mating but that doesn't mean it's not happening [​IMG][​IMG]

    I don't have personal experience yet, but I've been doing quite a bit of research on egg fertility lately and I would say the first and last eggs are fertile, and the middle one not. A fertile egg has a little bullseye on it and those look like perfect bullseyes to me.

    I'm sure someone will come along and correct me if I'm wrong [​IMG]

    Yes on all three. No doubt whatsoever!
