    Looks like it to me but I'm not an expert... just a reader lol

    I read somewhere that a fertile one will look like a tiny white target (a circle with rings) and an infertile one will just be a white? Not sure if I got that mixed up or not.

    I think (and i could absolutely be wrong) that the ones with the little white spot on the yolk are fertile. That's a little zygote!
    But it's still a little early to tell for most of them.

    I hope they're as delicious as mine have been!

    Kind'a late now. Go ahead and eat these and take a shot with the next ones. Success rates go way down when you take them out of the shell.
