I am constantly hearing people worry about having a rooster because they don't want to eat fertile eggs as they worry there will be a chick inside.
One lady who had been eating my chickens egg for months, is now refusing them because she found out I have roosters too.
People don't seem to understand that a chick will not develop in the egg unless its incubated, either in an incubator, or under a broody hen. Even then the embryo will not be easily visible for several days.
Even if the eggs are not collected every day, there is no chance of any development if they are not brooded.
It would be lovely if I could just leave a few eggs on my table and wait till they hatched.
I also had a neighbour who would not eat my duck eggs as they had 'been on the ground' and 'not in the fridge'. She did not know the best before date like the ones in the supermarket. uhhhhhhhhh...........
