Should we mention that some cows didn't start out as cows?

I keep three hens in my backyard. We are not allowed to have roosters in the city I live in.
Sometimes I bring eggs into work, or to friends. I often get asked how the chickens can lay eggs if there is no rooster.
I have to explain that the rooster is for fertilizing the eggs not making them.

When I was a kid my mother used to buy eggs directly from a local farmer who did have a rooster. Never forget the eggs with veins in them!

Surveys like this are skewed, not just because they usually only involve hundreds (maybe thousands) of people, but also because people with higher IQs tend to make excuses for not taking them, which leaves a significant number of 'Darwin Award finalists' to take them('Duh...a survey? Shurrr, I got nuthin' better tuh do!")...as well as people who feel like 'playing dumb' just to screw with whoever's asking the questions(and skew the results even more).

I saw an article years ago about how they eat dogs in China -- and think light furred dogs taste different from dark furred dogs.

And then there are brown eggs........

I think a Venn diagram would show cross sets of chocolate milk bunglers with Trumpers and Cosby jurors.
