    I am trying to determine the fertility of my bantam cochins. I cracked this egg open to see if it is fertile or not. I have looked at the pictures on fertile eggs and this egg looks to me like it has a circle around the middle ( a bullseye) which would mean it is fertile but my hubby says he doesnt see it. Here is a link to another post I made earlier about how to help fertility if anyone wants to take a look at it since no one has yet! https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=383181

    I do see the little spot you are talking about, but I don't think it is fertile. It looks a little different. I saw a great post with really good pictures of fertile eggs not too long ago. I will try and find it.

    Here it is:

    This should help you.

    *Actually, after looking at it some more, it may be the early stages of one. Not sure though.
