Rose, yes you can eat fertilized eggs. You won't even know they are fertilized. We are eating chicken periods. Eating the fertilized one can't be any grosser. ChickenCowRanch, My understanding is that Golden Buffs, Red Sexlinks, Comets, and several other things are just different names for the same chicken. My BR, JG, PR (Partridge Rock), RIR, and Columbian Rock all started laying before my Golden Buffs. I actually don't know for sure if any are laying yet. Stupid birds!
