I was wondering if this egg was fertile, to the right of the glare.
It looks to be fertile, but it's hard to say for sure without a better pic.
I know, it was the best picture i could get. It looked fertile to me too but all 6 of my chickens are laying. That's where I'm confused. How can this be? Or is the germinal disk just enlarged because of where i cracked the egg? Thanks anyway.
You mean you don't have rooster?
It's either going to be a "bullseye" or a small white speck. If you leave a clean but un-washed egg out for a few days to a week at room temperature the bullseye, if present, will become more noticable. (the egg will still be perfectly fine to eat, remember they don't refrigerate eggs in Europe!).
Do you free range....is there a rooster nearby?
Yes I do but only when I'm around because of Hawks. All my neighbors have hens.
