    Doesn't look fertile to me.
    It needs to show a Bull's Eye. There would be sort of a whole in the middle of the white spot.

    That is a fertile egg! Look at the white spot or the "bullseye" on the yolk.

    1st pic does look bullseyeish.... kinda hard to tell for sure... but I would bet fertile by what I see in the first pic.

    It wouldn't hurt to throw a few in the bator to be sure. The spot is small in the pic but it looks good.

    I'm blind then. LOL

    I say if in doubt, hatch it out!

    I'm still not seeing what the rest of you are seeing.

    Quote:Me to [​IMG] I do not see the gap in the center of the white spot, That gives the bullseye effect.. So I would say not fertile.. [​IMG]

    But no harm in putting in bator to see [​IMG]
