Who needs a rooster? The chicken, or the egg? Neither. Just in case you would like a little brush-up on chicken reproductive systems, here's a lovely poster that explains just where eggs come from.

Now that this poster has given you The Talk, you and your entire household can be grateful that this is the way things work, and that your ambitious chicken-keeping neighbor has only gentle hens and no morning-busting roosters.

The poster is by Amanda Visell, and can be found at Switcheroo.
