So..I have 3 hens that had been laying about an egg a day. A little over a month ago I lost my rooster, and soon after I stopped getting eggs. I just figured that with the warmer weather they were being taken by some critter of the night, snake, raccoon, etc... Wellllll..yesterday hubby was outside cleaning the rabbit hutch and I walk out just in time to see him throw 3 eggs into the woods. I ran out and asked him "WHY ARE YOU THROWING AWAY PERFECTLY GOOD EGGS?" His response was, "We don't have a rooster, so the eggs aren't any good cause they are not fertile." He was under the impression that for the eggs to have a yolk they had to be fertile. I was MAD, and explained that the eggs from the store are not fertile and he eats those all the time. Now hopefully he understands that eggs do not have to be fertile for them to be edible. My eggs should stop disappearing now. I must admit though, now that I am over being mad it is/was pretty funny.
