    My Black pullet began laying she is in with a roo who I have saw mate her quite a bit. Her first egg I checked was fertile whole bullseye and all. Secound egg I couldnt see anything not even a tiny dot that the bullseye starts from just a nice colored egg she is laying great eggs so whats the deal how come one was fertile and the other not showing ANYTHING? I'll try to get a picture of the next egg I get from her after cracked open.

    be patient, they will get it right soon enough, and you will have all the fertile eggs you can hatch, or eat, or sell, or whatever you choose to do with them. Sometimes, they just don't get fertilized.
