I'm "just" a city girl, but I was wondering. Does the rooster just squat over the eggs (they must have a soft shell at some point?) and squirt a little fertilizer? Come on, now, I'm being serious here. How come there are so many jokes about roosters chasing the hens in the barnyard if they aren't needed for egg production? I thought all eggs were fertilized.Fertilized eggs are the only ones that can make baby chickens. Most of the eggs that are produced for consumption are not fertilized. In order for a chicken to lay fertilized eggs, she must be impregnated by the rooster. He does it in normal typical fashion.
