do you think that is a bullseye mark as in "fertile?" then I would say yes, its what you think it is...
I just realized maybe you were asking about the little white thing off to the side of the bullseye...I couldnt tell if that was from the flash of the camera or reflection....if thats the case, then I am not sure what you think it is?
Yep. That's a fertilized egg you got there.
That's what I was worried about. First egg- HUGE, double yolker & one of the yolks fertilised. Now I have to figure out which one (or more) of my ee's is a roo
So we can "tell" fertile eggs when they're cracked open?
If they were picked up fresh out of the nest and placed in the fridge, would they have a mark like that? Or it that egg a little further along in its development?
There is so much to learn!
you mean no one is crowing? if that is the case you may be blessed with a quiet roo which in that case is probably worth his weight in gold look for saddle feathers that will give it away
If the roo is fertilizing eggs, he should be crowing by now??!!
The worst part is that my in laws would say that now you can't eat that egg.
I have a EE roo that was successful in mating with my hens well before he started crowing. I have several of his babies He does crow now.
I keep praying he's a quiet one, but I know I won't be that lucky *le sigh*
