Ok, I might sound incredibly stupid to you guys but I can't tell if my eggs are fertilized. Some (not all) have a little bit of blood (Pictured).

Thanks!

A 'meat spot' is not a fertilized egg. It's a bit of the ovaduct that broke loose at some point while the egg was being produced. Completely normal and happens all the time. A fertile egg will have a small white dot that is clear in the middle like a bullseye. Unfertilized eggs will have a solid white spot.
