    I was with a group of ladies last night when one of them piped up and asked me how my chickens were doing and if they had started to lay yet. When I told them all that the chickens were doing great and then answered yes about the laying, I was asked how much I wanted for the eggs. I told them my price and one lady chimes in and says, "I don't eat eggs." I asked her if she was allergic to them and she told me no. I then asked why she doesn't eat eggs and she answers, "Because eggs are a fetus and I don't eat babies." I was shocked and couldn't believe what I was hearing! [​IMG] We then went on to have a discussion about how eggs are not fetus' and that they would technically have to be fertilized before they could even produce a chick. She then asked me if I would eat one of my own eggs! [​IMG] I told her that wasn't the same, but in the end I just couldn't convince her that eggs weren't fetus'. I guess each to their own. [​IMG]

    I've heard that before too and it boggles my mind. My SIL has chickens & quail and feeds all her eggs to the dogs. But she'll eat grocery store eggs. I don't get it.

    My SIL told me one of her teachers at high school would try to gross her out by saying he had chicken fetus' for breakfast. A teacher for crying out loud!

    She was relieved when I told her that wasn't true. [​IMG]

    I still giggle about people who think you need a rooster around just to get the hens to lay eggs. I kept my mouth shut about it, though, when I was able to re-home 2 of my 6 roos to a lady who "needed them to get eggs from her hens"...I was just happy to get rid of the roos!!
