Eggs-pert Audience Participation Third Round!
If yesterday hen, who laid the abnormal eggs and actually laid three ugly eggs and one with no shell at all, is a DUD, what about the cock, is he also a DUD?
Compare the pictures of unincubated egg yolks. The bottom two photos are a comparison of unincubated unfertile (immediately above the bottom photo) and fertile eggs (bottom photo) in a much larger bird variety (probably a chicken) and are from Avian Medicine: Principles and Application by Ritchie, Harrison and Harrison.
The four top photos are all different shots of the same unicubated ugly egg pictured yesterday. (Be sure and click on each photo to enlarge the details.) It is much easier to see the spot in the ugly egg than it is to photograph it!
