I was thinking about adding a rooster to my flock. Will the eggs have any noticeable diffrence in them? Will they have veins or not? I sell most of my eggs so that is important. Thanks for any help.

As long as you gather eggs everyday, there will be no difference.

A fertilized egg only contains 1 more cell than a non fertile egg, until it is incubated and the cells divide.

I agree with RR. I sell fertilized eggs and in fact, some of my customers expect them. There's an old-timers myth about fertilized eggs being better for you. It's not true, but if it makes my egg customers happy I'm all for it.
