    Because like the human woman ovulates (eggs) a hen has eggs waiting to be fertilized.

    The initial creation of the eggs happens before the rooster would fertilize them... and then they are completed whether they are fertilized or not. So, since the process has to begin before fertilization would take place, then the eggs are made either way:)

    There are far fewer arguments and no divorces that way.

    An egg is edible, regardless of whether it's fertilized or not. However, who feels like eating an egg that's been fertilized?
