Is this egg fertile??

  1. This is one of my pekin eggs that I opened up yesterday.... I'm not an expert on these things, but does that little red dot on the yolk mean it's fertile?? I really hope so. :) If anyone knows please respond really quickly! Thanks!

    The red dot is a blood spot -0 not indicative of fertility. Do an on site search on 'bulls eye' - this appearance of the egg nucleus indicates fertility.
