All the Wood Behind One Arrowhead -- Fertile Eggs

In the 90's a computer company took advantage of a Robin Hood movie to describe their product concentration as "all the wood behind one arrowhead". Their claim was that concentrating their resources on one goal yielded superior results.

Well, that claim sure holds true for chickens, though "wood" is a tasteless pun in this context.

My current flock of four chickens includes one rooster and three hens. They are getting a lot of attention from Mr. Big.

Today I cracked eight eggs. Every single one of them was fertile! How can I tell? Each one had a "bullseye" on the yolk. You can see an excellent example of this at

Good job Mr. Big!
