Are eggs just a byproduct of a chicken, like milk from a cow? So, if you could please help answer this debate, I'd deeply appreciate it!

Editor: Aimee, this seems like a very subjective question! On the one hand, many vegetarians eat eggs without a second though; unless you are vegan, these usually fall into an otherwise meat-free diet. Unfertilized eggs have no way of becoming a chick, so it's not like you are eating a baby bird, in utero.
On the other hand, these are indeed coming from a chicken, so some vegetarians aren't comfortable eating them.
