    Hi everyone,
    for quite a while I have been finding blood clot-ish things in the eggs. Some people have told me that means the egg was fertalized. Others have said that it's just some blood that ended up in there while the egg was still being formed. I never found them beforeI got my rooster, but maybe that's just a coincidence. So, does thi s mean they are fertile, or is it jblood specs? The blood is usually attached to the yolk with a white stringish thing.
    THanks!

    This is what a fertile egg looks like:
