No, unfortunately ther are no signs that an egg has been fertilised, it is not until the fertilised egg reaches the uterus and implants there that there are any detectable changes. Your body will then produce hcg (human chorionic gonadotrophin), a hormone which is produced to sustAI

When its just fresh there's no telling. After the hen has been sitting on it or has been in an incubator you can tell be holding it against a bright light (you can see blood veins in the egg) or put it in water; a fertilized egg will float, and a non fertilized egg will sick. A spoiled/ rotten egg will float as well, but it will be quiet old when that happens.

How you can obtain fertilized and unfertilized egg from hens?

Once hens are of a certain age, they will produce eggs. If you want an unfertilized egg, don't put the hen with a rooster. Depending on the breed, she will give you 1-6 eggs per week. If you don't have a nest box for her, she will make a nest on the ground. If you want fertilized eggs, place a rooster with the hen, make sure the rooster knows his job, and the next day you may have a fertilized egg. There is a way to tell if the egg has been fertilized once it's cracked open, but through the shell, you can't tell until the egg is incubated and the chick starts to develop.
