    I know you don't have to have a rooster for the hen to lay eggs. I heard that the eggs has a stronger taste if the rooster has fertilize them. Is this true?

    I used to have just hens and then I got a rooster. I noticed absolutely no difference in taste.

    I totally agree. Absolutely no difference in taste.
