    Can you see the sperm in a goose egg and any way to tell if it is fertile when cracked open

    It's possibly the same as chicken eggs with the fertile bullseye [​IMG]

    I think the correct name is a blastoderm. If you crack an egg on the yolk is a small white ring if its solid its infertile if its more a ring with a clear centre its fertile. Type 4794635 into the search bar and theres a thread with pics that explains it better. I would have thought its the same for goose eggs [​IMG]
