Seriously? Have they never witnessed what chickens in a coop or flock will do to one with an open wound? Some people have more money than good sense.
Call me cruel but I'll save my compassionate rescuing for creatures with brains bigger than a [cough] chickpea.

No they are not unborn chickens.
1. chickens lays eggs even if they aren't fertilized.
2. an unfertilized egg will never become a chicken or a rooster. To not eat them would be a waste as they will rot.
