    Is this the bulls eye to tell if the egg is fertile ?

    Looks like it, if there is a dot in that second circle then yes! I can't tell for sure by the glare of the pic.

    yes at first when I used this method I thought I was way off mark and seeing things..I went into my fridge after learning the bulls-eye method and cracked all 12 eggs that I collected throught eh weekend and all 12 were fertile! I ordered a bator the next day!!!

    You didn't kill anything, as the hen needs to sit on the egg for a time before anything develops! So all is good scramble it up and have it for breakfast!
