For Mothers Day - Things to teach your children

For those with kids/having kids/wanting kids - My current reading led me to an educational discussion with The Hun this morning:

Do vegetarians eat eggs?
Why's that, hunny?
Well, because the rooster hasn't fertilised the eggs yet, isn't that like eating an unborn baby?

Short story long, my edumacational lesson for today is that it's proddly in everyone's best interest for you to find out that roosters DO have doodles and DO mate with chickens (in fact ALL male birds will mate with female birds), NOT that the male bird has to do some magical thing with the egg after it is laid BEFORE you reach 24 years of age.

(Here's a helpful link - at least I didn't thinkit had to do with head pecking)
