Not sure the hens have a chance to think about it - or maybe that's just Hector's technique.
yes they are not the most romantic of birds

Occasionally you do hear of people hatching shop bought eggs!.
The Eggs for sale in supermarkets are not supposed to be fertile as some bright spark came up with the idea that the sperm from a cockerel is a foreign body rather than being part of a natural process called LIFE!.
I will continue to keep a cockerel and I think he will continue to do his Job.
Luckily for me he can not read anything not even Country Smallholder even though he likes to look at the Birds!.  ;)
Kind regards
Joe  :)

have just watched "What really is in our food" - now this makes more sense. they showed half incubated eggs sold on a grand scale for processed foods...:&>

they were filming this. so one has to ask was this faked for the filming. any firm doing that and willing to be filmed would be shut in a second. even the worst quality control would have detected the maggots and half formed chicks. by the way were did the chick come from. i thought all commercial flock were female.

remember, this shot was supposedly taken in Italy. Maybe the eggs were imported from the Philipines? All EU produced products can be sold here, like they can be in cakes and what have it as processed egg. the sentiment was that they use rubbish to sell us in the supermarkets, nothing new there, all in all a good program for newbies, lol. I wonder if the informant in the meat industry is still alive...:&>
