    I finally saw the little 'fertilised' target on the yolk!

    Pity I cracked it for my dogs dinner when I'd been trying to pick out all this hens eggs to put under my broody (I just got her so shes the only one who has been with a roo)

    So I'm bummed that I cracked it, but probably means that my broody DOES have little babies growing under her in the four eggs she has! WOO! I wasn't sure but YAY!

    Now I'll have to try candling tonight hehe

    saw an eyeball tonight!
    Two are kind of dark on one side and light on the other, what does that mean?
    Other one is still clear.
