Title says it all...
Only if you don't want to
Yes, you won't be able to taste the difference. You have to incubate it to change it.
ok thanks what if it sits for a day??? sorry im a beginner
As long as you don't incubate it at 100 or so F, it is no different.
The only way you can tell if it is fertilized is to look at the spot on the yolk. If it is a bulleye then it is. There are some pics somewhere on here....even if the eggs sit in the coop for a day or two there wont really be any development. The best way to "avoid surprises" is to pick up eggs every day. Twice a day if it is very hot or very cold. If an egg is just lying there with no hen sitting on it it will NOT develop so you dont need to worry.

Dont tell "non-chicken" people this however....some pay extra for fertilized eggs! T
I hope so I do everyday
Last year when I got my first eggs my mom wouldn't touch em bc they were fertile. Now she eats em no prob. It took a while of me telling her they were good and other ppl on her about em.
I had a friend who always ate fertile eggs they were the only ones he would eat, well it so happens that one day while in the shower he miscarried a black astrolorp pullet, he felt so bad that he never ate an egg again. The poor soul still has nightmares about it, and when he drives by a KFC he looses it, he starts screaming and crying. I wish there was something I could do for him, but I think he is just plain ole nutts
I've been eating them for over 25 years, but it does bother me when I hear someone say that I'm eating a very young baby chick.
