    I "think" it is fertile, but I just want to double check. The pattern is not so large and dominant as the ones pictured in speckledhen's post on this topic. So judge my egg please. Fertile, or no?

    In my very novice opinion ....

    That looks like a pefect example of a fertail bullseye.

    Those speck you see on the left side of the picture were indeed in the egg. I have no idea what they are. what are meat specks, and what does that mean?

    Meat spots are tiny pieces of tissue from the hen's tract. Happens sometimes. Yes, your egg looks fertile. Good pic!
