Did you know? People around the world raise chickens and eat their eggs, as they have done for thousands of years.

The domestic chicken is a descendent of the red jungle fowl, a native of India. A single chicken can lay up to 300 eggs each year.

Can you hatch your own chicken from those eggs in the refrigerator? Probably not.

In most countries, eggs produced for sale in grocery stores are not fertilized - no rooster or male chicken is present to father young. If your eggs come from a local farm housing both hens and roosters, however, hatching an egg may be possible.

You can candle the egg - hold it up to a bright light - to see if there is a chick growing inside.

Have you ever eaten a duck egg, goose egg, or quail egg? These birds can also be raised for consumable eggs. Whatever the type, it's time to fry some eggs! Sharpen your pencil, and don't get scrambled!
