    Yes, I'm sure. Note that the egg contains a single cell (I don't think the entire egg is normally considered to be a whole cell - but I'm not sure about that) and if an eggs is fertilized then that single cell will start dividing and replicating.

    Depends if you're talking about the gamete, or the amniotic egg, of course.

    Eggs in birds are produced in an ovary just like in humans. This is not like the egg you boil however - it's just a small ovum. The egg, whether it is fertilised or not, travels down through a series of structures and arrives at the "shell gland" (also known as the uterus) where the shell is laid down.


    The egg that you boil is unfertilised and contains just one cell. You can observe that cell by looking for a small white patch attached somewhere to the outer surface of the yolk - it's very small and quite hard to spot. Many people mistakenly believe that the yolk is the cell nucleus and the egg white the cytoplasm.
