    planet chicken
    Today i got the egg from my leghorn that started laying agian.
    i was hopeing it was fetile when i cracked it open. it didn't
    have the bullseye but when i flipped the yolk over there it was.
    is it normal to have the bullseye on the other side?
    is it still good for hatching? (not the cracked 1)

    Isn't it just random chance which side of the yolk ends up facing up? That would mean that it has equal chance on being on the top and bottom.

    However, that is a guess.
