QUESTION
I was told that having a rooster among your chickens would change the cholestrol of an egg to a more benifical cholesterol, is this true and if so is there data to support this statement? Thanks for your help : )


ANSWER

There is no scientific reason as to producing fertile eggs which have a lower cholesterol content. So, my answer is no.
