    Can you eat fertile eggs like you would store bought eggs or are you getting a big dollop of rooster semen?

    WE eat ours all the time....no dollop of sperm unless you know what you are looking at you would not know they were fertile...

    We've always ate ours with no problems. Now my grandmother won't touch one of our eggs because of the roosters. She has a real problem with eating a fertile egg....but it's all in her head!!

    Let's be serious, if you will eat eggs (U do realize what end of the chicken they come from?), what's the big deal about fertilized vs unfertilized eggs? Yes, I understand what the deal is but to me that's like worrying about ants in the kitchen when you've got elephants in there.

    Now, half incubated eggs..........I'll pass. Let them grow up so I can eat fried chicken..
