    It is kind of hard to tell. I agree with the others and I don't think so.

    Quote:Just what it says.......a white dot smack in the center of a very prominant white ring around it! When you see it there will be no doubt about what it is!

    If there is no bulls eye, then what is the white on the yolk in the second picture?
