Is there a way to know which eggs are fertile eggs?

    I have a Rooster who tries to breed with all the girls so I guess I should assume all layed eggs are fertile and I don't care one way or the other but I was curious about if there was a way to tell.

    I have such vast experience with this now that my pullet has layed a whopping three eggs!
    (very tongue in cheek and yes we are at the third day and the third egg - still exciting!!!!) Wish the other pullets would follow suit and make me some egg!

    Thanks. That is a good link. I knew you could tell but I couldn't remember just how. Thanks again for the info.
