Its a turkey egg and to me it don't have a bullseye.
Looks fertile to me.
Really how can you tell my tom is only 10 months old and i never caught him mating then hen
Looks fertile to me too.
Easy way...is it round, or is it odd shaped? This is a nice round blastoderm, and fertile. The bullseye is there if you look carefully, but the shape is easier.
wow if its fertile im suprised i never seen my turks mate they must do it at night when im not around. how cold does it have to get before the egg will die? i find its still cold outside but my turn is 2 years old and part wild so im sure she will set when she has enough eggs.
Unless you watch them every minute of the day, I bet they can find time. It doesn't take long, and some toms are "shy" and don't like an audience.
As far as the egg dying, I have hatched eggs that were chilled to 40 but I find that they often have issues with absorbing either the albumen or yolk as deep chilling changes the consistency of those materials.
Im from canada so if you mean 40f which is i think 0c here, then idk my eggs may die my barn gets to around -8c at night.
Your 0C is our 32F The freezing point.
Well then unless your hen is sitting on them, bring those eggs inside and join a hatch-a-long!
i got no incubator which sucks.
