    I'm still learning....

    but I think infertile on the bottom one. Not sure about top.

    What store did you get them from? I know some have hatched out of eggs from Trader Joe's and other natural food type stores. Most at the regular super markets won't be fertile.

    Did you already compare them to the pics in the learning center. I know there are some under the hatching 101 thread.

    I agree, although the bullseye on the top looks a little dispersed for good fertility. How old are the eggs? Check the Julian date (today is 031) to determine their freshness.
