    Okay, so I've heard a million times how to tell if an egg is fertile or not, but I'm going to ask you guys, to make sure. [​IMG]



    How can you tell if an egg has been fertilized when you crack it open? Thanks!

    You crack me up, Deniece! [​IMG] My brain is slowly turning mushy, too. That's why it's good that SEARCH works so well here, or I'd be lost in BYC-land.

    LOL! Thanks! I needed these pics, too, and couldn't seem to locate them.

    I got a quick question.. cracked an egg with the donut and another skinny ring on the outside of that. Fertile? Or not?

    i'm so freakin' confused.. :eek:

    Sounds like it's fertile to me, but hard to say without a picture.
