I'm new to chickens and need some help identifying if these eggs are fertilized.
Before I make any guesses do you have a cock (rooster)? A hen can lay eggs without a rooster present.
Blastodisc are the infertile dots you see while the blastoderm is a bunch of concentric rings like a bullseye.
The top one, I can't tell but the bottom 2 definitely look fertile to me.
Yes I do have a rooster. Never seen them mate though. It's a unclear pics but the lower one looks like a bullseye but not sure.
Thanks. Yeah top I didnt bother to find the embryo because I broke the yoke.
If they weren't fertile, the blastodisc (sp?) would be the size of a pin head. The "bullseye" isn't always apparent but you can tell by the size of the blemish.
I see. Thanks for your help.
