    From what I've learned on byc it's almost impossible to tell a fertil from a unfirtil egg if you crack open fresh ones.

    If it's just a little white "blob", it's infertile, if it's got a bullseye, it is fertile.

    hopefully someone will pull up a pic
    A bullseye is a spot on the yolk that looks like a bullseye , I have seen them and know what they look like , I was just in denial as I ddint want this beutifull egg someone so carefully packaged and shipped to me to be infertal. And I havent seen many of those bumps dots ,,,, wonder what they are [​IMG]
