Q: Are fertilized eggs okay to eat?
A: Fertilized eggs are fine to eat, in fact some people consider them to be healthier than unfertilized eggs. It is impossible to taste the difference, and barely possible to see the difference between a fertilized and non-fertilized egg with the naked eye. Eggs will only develop and hatch if incubated, either by a hen or in a man-made incubator, and it takes 21 days of exacting conditions, including just the right temperature and just the right humidity. if you gather your eggs regularly every day, they will never develop.
