fertilized eggs--selling?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread
have any of you had trouble selling your fertilized eggs (to eat)?
I read a few threads on CS recently--apparently fertilized eggs are actually lower in chloresteral. But do people care about eating them? (we eat them). I hate to knock off the two roosters..so far, no trouble with fighting..just hens that are probably getting jumped too much and losing their back feathers (sigh...)

Cat /the people I sell eggs to are from "Town"--they don't know if an egg is fertilized or what--they just say---my- how orange the yolks are!!!!! ha!!!!
I have bantams--& of coarse the eggs are smaller---one lady wanted to know if it was what I feed them that made the eggs smaller & different colors!!----
People never cease to amaze me!!! ha!!!

That's the truth! There are people here in the middle of the "Country" who have never seen or heard of a green egg.

My Americaunas started laying and my little kid was laughing because she didn't know there was really such things as Green Eggs and Ham.
We are eating fertile eggs, but after reading an article about the nature of chickens, I don't think I want to mention to my family that each yoke is swimming with millions of rooster sperm.
Next week is butcher day, then I will separate breeding stock from production stock. I will be more comfortable, then.
I am the kind of person who cannot even look at an egg while I am pregnant. My first pregnancy, I was caretaking a farm and there was a mix up on which nest to gather eggs from. After cracking a few half formed chicks into the frying pan, I was off eggs for a long time. That was 20 years ago and I am still very, very careful about the personal lives of my chickens.
