    Can you eat fertilized eggs? I know this might sound dumb to some of you but bear with me I'm new to this and don't know. Thanks for helping in advance

    Absolutely. All of our eggs are fertile. You cant tell the difference in taste, texture, etc.

    Good enough. That helps me out a lot. Thanks to everybody for quick answers to all of my questions. There is not a day that goes by without me learning something on BYC. This is a great site.

    Yes, but of course you must collect them regularly. You wouldn't want to eat an egg that a hen has been sitting on for a few days and risk having a glob of blood vessels in your pan or bowl.

    Yes, you can, and if you let them develop a little bit it's called balut. [​IMG]
