    [​IMG]. Hi I am new to this whole chicken thing and have a small flock of mixed birds I have 5 heirloom Rhode Island reds and one black austra lorp . I think my austra is a rooster not to sure . My eggs have a white spot in the yokes and it makes a strange loud sound like a hearty laugh not a traditional crow . Very confused .

    That is 100% hen - if you look around a bit here you'll find lots of threads about the fact that you see spots in infertile eggs and the difference between that spot and the"bullseye" of a fertilized egg
