    So what are guidelines on having a rooster and wanting the eggs to eat?
    One of our chicks turned out to be a rooster. We are wondering if eggs from our hens will be safe to eat and not have anything growing inside. Not exactly certain on how that process works

    As long as the eggs have not been incubated by a hen or in an incubator they are perfectly fine to eat. Nothing will be developing in them. They are just as delicious as eggs from hens that don't have a roo running with them.

    Enjoy those eggs :D
