    Yup, the first three are for sure and I'm pretty sure the last one is, too (hard for me to see.)

    this will sound really dumb, but what difference does it make weather the eggs are fertile or not as far as cooking them and eating them?

    i don't think the OP was questioning if they were fertile, as in an application for eating. i think they were asking, because maybe they were going to try their hand at incubating/brooding, or just curious in general if the rooster was doing his job.
