    I think this egg is fertile, but I want to make sure it is before I stick a bunch of those into the incubator and end up throwing them away after a week (as I did a month ago :()
    Thanks

    I can't believe how blind I am. I think I see a ring around it, so I'm going to say fertile. Sorry but I've been on here too long and my eyes hurt to bad to just be able to look and see and I had to really move into the monitor.

    It looks fertile to me, but the screen is so bright i have pains shooting through my eyes.


    OK someone who can see clearly please come in and confirm that it's fertile.

    I do think you can start hatching them now. I'm sorry, I just didn't realize how much trouble I was having until I had to see details of something. You'd think that big I could do it. But I'm holding at fertile. Funny how small a yolk can be when you have it in front of you and you can tell right off.
