I have 10 hens and 2 roosters. 3 hens are laying and I check for eggs numerous times a day. And when there are eggs I grab them up and refrigerate them. My issue is that when I go to cook them I get paranoid that I'm going to crack an egg to eat and there will be a baby in it. I know it takes a while for a baby to form, but I still worry. I would like to make boiled eggs, but then I wouldn't be able to open it before cooking!!!
