    I have been wondering about this so I figure I would let the experts answer it. I have a rooster (for now) so when the little ladies start laying in the next couple of weeks, will the eggs be the same as if the Roo wasn't there at all? An egg, is an egg, is an egg at the beginning, right? I suppose if left under a broody lady, it may turn into something but all the eggs are the same initially, right? Still quite edible? The answer is probably obvious but I am just not getting it!! Thanks for clearing up my egg quandry and dope slap me later!

    Yep, as long as you do not incubate it, it's just an egg.
