A hen, when is six months old gives an egg every one or one and a half day. Yet, it is not necessary for the hen to mate before laying an egg. Hence, the eggs that the hen lays without mating are unfertilized eggs which are primarily the eggs sold to us in the markets. So, the eggs that we eat are unfertilized or as we call it in simple terms, artificial eggs. Scientists say that these unfertilized eggs haven’t yet reached the state where they contain an embryo. So technically we aren’t consuming an animal/bird.
