I think its fertil so hard to tell in pictures. All yolks have a white dot on them its when they ahve a ring around that dot that they are fertil. Hopefully someone can give a more experianced opnion.
No, I don't think that's a fertile egg, sorry.
Here is a pic of one of my fertile quail eggs if that helps at all
Do you have a better straight on pic of it?
Is it Fertile or Infertile?
To check the fertility, simply break an egg in a bowl. Find the white spot on the yolk. If you do not, use a spoon to gently flip the yolk over until you find it.
If the egg is fertile, the white mark will be nearly perfectly round and in the center it will be yellow;
it will resemble a donut. If it is infertile, the white mark will not be very round, and in most cases, smaller than that of the fertile mark. If the egg is not fertile, the 'white mark' is called a "blastodisc". If the egg is fertile, the 'white mark' it is called a "blastoderm", and this means that cell division, because of fertilization, occurred.
