    Ah-ha, NOW I see it...before it was a MEGA closeup and I couldn't make anything out. Sp are we looking at that white bullseye looking mark in the yolk?

    See the white dot with the ring around it - almost like a bulls-eye? That indicates that it is a fertilized egg.

    Quote:Thanks! Now that I can see the whole picture, that's what I thought we were looking at...before when it loaded, it was HUGELY close up and all I saw was a yellow yolk! I was like, what?!

    Quote:Mister is a RIR and I have 5 RIR hens and 6 white wynadottes. Was trying to breed only RIR hens but they have slowed down in laying so I let him have the run of place. It'll be interesting to see the out come of a RIR/wayndotte.
