Fertile eggs

lil mikey | Jun 15, 2005 07:52 PM

For some reason, my wife has decided to start buying cage-free eggs from Trader Joe’s. I guess since they’re cage-free, the roosters get after them, and the eggs are therefore fertile.

I think I’ve read somewhere before that fertile eggs are actually better for you (assuming you’re not squeamish).

But what about the little fetuses in there? Recently we’ve had little solid bodies in the eggs. Is it okay to eat these? Are they good or bad for you? It’s kind of gross, so we’ve been taking them out before cooking (or as they’re cooking in the case of fried eggs). But we wouldn’t be able to take them out of hard boiled eggs prior to cooking. Any input?
