Ok, I am a complete newcomer. I have searched the forum for my answer. Although a tremendous amount of info exists here, I cannot find my answer to this specific question. I am sure this is an easy one for anyone with a little experience. We got our first 3 chickens, they are about 10 weeks old, I am pretty sure one is a rooster. We got the chickens as pets for the kids and for eggs. We love them. Anyway, If we want just eggs for consumption, should we get rid of the rooster? We dont need fertilised eggs. As mentioned throughout this forum, we have the whole noise thing to contend with as well, but will all eggs come out fertilised? Is there an edible difference between fertilised and non? Thanks and forgive my ignorance.
