    I am just wondering if this is what a fertile egg looks like or are these not fertile.

    After closer inspection it appears (at least to my untrained eye) they are fertile. So now I need to figure out if they can be fertilizes through the fence or is the neighbors roosters visiting my chickens?

    Could be your young roo. And no I don't think your neighbors rooster is doing it though the fence. So it is either your young roo or the neighbors roo is getting in your fence some how'
