it has been now 6 days untill the first egg was layed, i candled both eggs yesterday (5th day) but found nothing, but today when i candled them i saw a big black dot at the side, i would say the dot was 1/4 of the egg, is my egg fertile, or is this just the yolk of the egg

Looks like they are fertile, but just be patient and leave them to the parents. To much touching is no good because they need to be turned by parents on regular bases. If you disturb them too much they may abandon them as well.

they sound fertile, but you would see veins running through the yolk too, here is a link to a chicken egg about 4 days old..it would look similar to this.

I would not handle the eggs very much...they either are going to hatch or they won't, but I know it is hard not knowing..lol..I candle mine one time and then leave them be.
