    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!

    Question time!
    1) It looks like they are pulling the feathers from my 1 Hen, Rosie, is that normal? Her tail has like 2 feathers left! poor thing.. So she is wings and a fluffy butt!
    They can be doing that cause she's low on the totem pole...if they get really bad, I quarantine the one for a few days...sometimes it helps

    2) Since apparently one of my larger girls is actually a boy, He is not crowing, do I had to worry about him fertilizing the eggs of my 3 girls? And my BF mom says you can't eat an egg that has been fertilized, is that true?
    Chances are, if he's doing his job, yes they're fertile....this is NOT a bad thing! I love when people say stupid stuff like your BF's mom. Of course you can eat them if they're fertile. There's no difference between a fertile and infertile egg when you crack it open except a small bullseye....which doesn't change the taste, texture or appearance of the egg once it's cooked!

    Hmmm. No matter how disgusting that sounded, you will NOT stop me from eating eggs. However, please stop trying! I LOVE EGGS! And chicken periods (aka eggs) with Haggis is simply divine!

    Glad to see I'm not the only one who took pictures of the first egg and an egg in a nest!! I guess this is normal 'chicken person' behavior?[​IMG]

    I have no doubt she would just love them!!! That is the problem, I have trouble keeping her in the house as it is and every time she hears a squawk on the baby monitor she comes running to tell me about it! I don't need quacking added to the list yet! [​IMG]

    I can see it now... Chris and I, 2 dogs and 3 ducks headed out on the boat to fish.... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That little dog honestly acts like she thinks the chickens need her attention sunup to sundown. The only way to get her to chill is when she gets to help us put them to bed at night and feed them their snack she goes into the house and is back to 'normal dog' mode.
