This question has a different perspective to it but I think this is the best place to ask. I'm a newbie and just got my first egg. Yay! We also have an unintentional cockeral with our 8 pullets. My 14-year-old daughter is concerned about eating our eggs because she's afraid they're fertilized and we're "killing a baby chick". I've explained that without the right conditions the eggs would never hatch anyway, but she's not convinced. Short of neutering the rooster, what can I say to my daughter to reassure her that the eggs are not fertile?
