    See the darker round spot in the middle. Its hard to see in pic but it looked like the same size of the blastodisc but its dark. Im looking for fertilized eggs but im not sure if our rooster is mature enough yet

    I agree that it not fertile. It is normal, blood spots happen from time to time. Happens when a yoke separates and a blood vessel pops.
