    I would love to sell my eggs to friends, to counter balance my feed costs. However, several are afraid to buy, because they are afraid they will be eating 'baby chicks." I gather each day, they are completely fresh, and even I am not sure that they are fertile, because most of my roosters are very old and not interested in having a love life. All they want to do is sit on my lap and have treats. What can I tell these silly people?

    That they will only form chicks if they are incubated at a constant temp of 100 degrees... and until then they are just eatin eggs [​IMG]

    Good luck with that though... people can be very strange about such things.
