Okay dokie, so about 9-10 months ago I started to get grossed out about eating meats from chickens, cows, pigs, turkeys, etc.. I was at the grocery store and I looked at the meat section and I could literally vizualize each animal as if it was alive and breathing. It freaked me out... so i off and on ate meat, but then about 2 months ago I had some meat in front of me and this fowl stench came about, and i got really grossed out. So as of 5 weeks ago I stopped eating certain meats. And a few days ago i stopped eating fish b/c i was bsing myself trying to say fish isnt meat, but it clearly is.<br><br>
So today I was eating some egg whites. I dont like the yolk because it could have been a chicken? But thats what i am asking now.<br><br>
Eggs - I know the egg white is a good source of protein, and i read somewhere that they protect the shell. But my question is, does the chicken inside the egg use that protein to develop? Im confused as how a chicken comes about. I know the chicken produces and egg and then a new chicken is hatched, but how do we eat eggs in the first place? What caused it to go from a chicken hatching to something we buy in the grocery store. What stopped the growth?<br><br>
Thanks!

Roosters are what cause an egg to be able to hatch a chick. If a fertilized egg is incubated properly you get more chickens. Unfertilized eggs are what most people eat and what hens lay as long as there are no roosters for them to mate with.<br><br><a href="http://www.chow.com/food-news/54729/whats-the-difference-between-fertilized-and-unfertilized-eggs/" target="_blank">http://www.chow.com/food-news/54729/...rtilized-eggs/</a>
