So someone where I work was saying not to eat eggs from the pullets since they are full of yucky stuff. I asked what yucky stuff. He was all like you know when they start up a well they have to get the debris out of the pipes. Pretty sure my pullets don't have "debris" in those pipes. Made me lol and kind of at the same time. I know they are safe to eat and hey those folks that are all college educated where I work had to have it explained that a rooster is not needed in order for a hen to lay an egg.
