Just woundering if this is the bullseye everyone talks about as meaning its fertile. This is a duck egg.

No I already fed it to the dog but I think I was looking in the wrong spot, I was looking at the side by the white stringy stuff, sorry dont know the tech terms. Guess I could just put tomorrows egg in and wait 3 days and see.

Was really hard geting a pic in my house, light is poor and the flash kept messing up the pic.

I don't see anything looking like a bullseye. It would be ON the yolk or part of the yolk-- a small circle of slightly lighter colored yellow, anywhere on the yolk, with a yellow bullseye/ring in it. You'll know it when you see it.

It looks infertile. I'm pretty sure I can see the spot at 8 o'clock, close to the edge, and it just looks like a spot, no bullseye. Hopefully your duck gets his species right soon.

He will get it done.

The best way to tell if an egg is fertile is to incubate for a few days and candle.
