One of my silkie hens has started leaving me an egg each day. I have no need or desire right now to try to hatch them, and have been gathering them and putting them in the fridge. This is likely a stoooopid question, but can we just eat them like a regular egg? Do people eat silkie eggs? They are almost too cute! I am afraid of cracking one open and finding chick parts inside. I also have roosters, one of which is riding the hens all the time.....so the chances of them being fertilized are very good. Also, is one egg a day a normal regime? My other 5 hens are not laying anything yet. They are about 6 months old. There appears to be no interest on the part of the hen towards keeping the egg to herself. She just drops in in the nest box and goes outside to play.
