    My husband showed me this, someone posted it to his facebook. It's really interesting but does make me ask a few Hmmm questions.
    Number one is exactly how do they get the rooster sperm to fertilize it?
    Can eggs be fertilized after being layed or is there a reason for fertilization to happen before the shell forms other than for the obvious reasons...

    This would give a whole new meaning to me running around the yard telling my roosters to "Give me some love".
