I run a page where people post confessions. Today I got a confession of someone in uni that said that they don’t know how chicken eggs and roosters work. How do I respond to that? I feel like it’s a stupid question but I wanna give a good answer.
At my internship we have chicken who lay eggs. I asked myself how chicken can lay eggs without a rooster. A friend told le that the egg is in a cycle, just like mentruation. But then the question arises, how does the fertilization work? Is there even a need for fertilization? For 22years I’ve thought that chicks come out because the chicken sits on the eggs long enough. That brings me the next question: What’s the purpose of the rooster?
