No need for embarrassment, even those of us who raise chickens don't
know the physiology.
I hope the description of how eggs are made does not cause anyone to
stop eating them. Eggs have taken many cheap and erroneous shots over
the last several decades. The cholesterol rap is nonsense in my
opinion. Sure, eggs have fat. They also contain lecithin, which breaks
down fat into easily digestible bits. And, by the way, cholesterol is
important for healthy bodies.
I have long considered eggs to be a perfect food. After all, with
fertilization they are capable of creating a complete animal.
