No. Unfertilised eggs are eaten boiled, sunny face up or scrambled just like in America. Chickens are not eaten till they are fleshy and certainly not before they have come out of their shells. What were eaten at one time were tiny song birds called "Ortolans" the bones of which were so soft they could be eaten. If you have seen the film "Gigi", she is taught how to eat one and taken to a smart restaurant and has to eat one ( with great reluctance).They were considered a great delicacy, but now it is illegal to kill them, so you can no longer eat them. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnew... If your story takes place more than ten years ago then it would still have been possible to eat them then.

Isaac Originally Answered: At what point are birds considered "birds of prey"?
It is not diet that determines whether birds are considered birds of prey or not. For example, domestic chickens eat a lot of worms, and even snakes. Ducks have been known to eat frogs, and pelicans will eat fish and even an occasional bird. OTOH, the burrowing owl and American kestrel eat mostly insects.The term bird of prey refers to birds like eagles, falcons, hawks, and owls, which use their well developed claws, called talons, to capture and/or kill prey. The birds of prey do not form a monophyletic group, meaning they did not inherit their talons from a common ancestor but evolved them independently. Falcons are recently found, using DNA evidence, to be more closely related to parrots than they are to the hawks, and owls are not the closest relatives of hawks, even though they are actually closer relatives than previously thought. In any case, their similar methods of prey capture is almost certainly the result of convergent evolution.

If you mean chicken eggs - then the French do eat these, as do people in most other countries. But, if you mean the little bird that has developed in the egg and before hatching, no - no-one that I know of eats this, certainly not the French.

Not inside the egg, no, that is not at all part of our food tradition and I never heard of anyone eating that in France. We do eat young chicken. Not chicks, though we call them poussins (chick). They are already 5 or 6 weeks old and weight in at 250/300 gr.

You are referring to fertilized eggs and the "baby chickens" in the eggs are actually called embryoes (in the English language). No, French ppl do not eat fertilized eggs. But they do eat rabbit sausage, rabbit stew and lamb's heads (yes, you can buy a lamb's head in supermarkets). Some health food nuts in the US do eat fertilized eggs though most Americans would think that is gross.

Assur Originally Answered: If evolution was true why do people not adapt to sunlight like Birds?
Problem is, It isn't true, The evidence for evolution is and has been interpreted from a Philosophical and ideological Bias, The answers given by adherents to Evolution here in R&S is proof of the bias and agenda, Atheism has to have an alternate explanation—other than a Creator—for how the universe and life came into existence. Darwin once identified himself as a Christian but as a result of some tragedies that took place in his life, he later renounced the Christian faith and the existence of God. Evolution was invented by an atheist. What is sad is that Christians are falling into this Trap and trying to fit evolution into the Bible (Theistic Evolution) thinking they can make it fit. Lee Stroble in his video listed below “ The Case for the Creator” stated (5 min. 28 sec into the video) The Case for a Creator http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=688111496234161611# That “There is no way you can Harmonize Neo Darwinism with Christianity, I could never understand Christians who would say “ Well I believe in God yet I believe in Evolution as well” You see Darwin’s idea about the development of life led to his theory that modern science now generally defines as an undirected process completely devoid of any purpose or plan,”. Now how could God direct an undirected process? How could God have purpose in a plan behind a system that has no plan and no purpose? It just does not make sense. It didn’t make sense to me in 1966 and it doesn’t make sense to me now. The Apostle Paul wrote to His Son Timothy stating that “ in 2 Timothy 4:3-4 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, [because] they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn [their] ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” Those Christians who believe in evolution have no idea how that effects their theology.
