    I cracked some open and I saw the clear bullseye. I do not have a rooster. Only drake. I know that it wouldn't make a chick but would it possible to make a bulls eye? Like a "fake" fertile egg?

    It is not possible for you to have fertile eggs if you do not have a rooster....unless someone is sneaking over the fence and courting those girls while you aint looking [​IMG]

    Ok.....are you sure you saw a bullseye. You should only see a circle if it is not fertile. If the eggs is fertile you will see a circle with a dot in it. I hope that helps. I have never heard of them making a "fake" fertile egg.

    Well, I having been seeing fertility spots on the duck and pheasant eggs. So they are smaller. The chicken eggs are probably just bigger.
