    Could these be eggs fertile? I haven't seen this on my eggs before and I have one EE "girl" who isn't laying yet. Now I'm wondering if she's an EE boy. OTOH, if they're not fertile, we'll just wait for her to lay. We're *really* hoping they're not fertile and she isn't a he.

    Those are not fertile eggs. Here's what you look for (pic from the University of Kentucky):

    Have you posted a photo of your suspected cockerel on the "What Breed or Gender is this?" forum yet? If your bird is the same age as others that are already laying eggs, it will be very easy for us to sex it for you.
