    Can / should you eat fertilized eggs. I see that alot of people leave their rooster in with the hens. So does this mean their eggs are mostly fertilized? Would you even know the difference?

    tazcat70 I must be crazy!

    Yes, you can eat them. The only way to tell if they are fertilized is to either incubate them or to crack one open and look for the "bullseye."

    You can do a search for bullseye to find what it looks like. This is just one I found...
