I'm so new at all of this. I have 8 golden comet chicks that are about 8 weeks old. I have only ever had a few fresh eggs last summer and I can't wait to get my own. I have a few questions that have been floating around in my head for a while now... 1. Is there any nutritional difference between fertilized and unfertilized eggs? Someone told me a few weeks ago that an unfertilized egg is not a complete protein. I would guess that the grocery store eggs are unfertilized, right? 2. In the fresh eggs I've had before, I've seen some red dots (blood?) - one in each egg. Is this a sign of fertilized eggs? Or doesn't it make any difference? 3. I only purchased pullets because I didn't want to crack open an egg to eat to discover a partially formed chick in there. If I were to get a roo (which I most likely won't anytime soon), how do you keep that from happening? 4. Since I don't have a roo, will my hens ever "go broody"? If they do go broody, do I just take out any eggs they are sitting on? 5. Even though we've built a coop and run, we have yet to put in any nesting boxes. How many should I have for my 8 chicks? Should I put them at ground level or raised? Should they be enclosed (a 5-sided cube) or something open? About how big should they be? I thought I read about someone just purchasing some plastic dishpans... would this work? Should I put them in soon? Please excuse any stupid questions. I'm just trying to learn... Thanks.
