Is Egg Forbidden in Hinduism?

Although some radical Hindus still oppose eating eggs and Brahmins (founder of hinduism) have not given any fatwa (guideline) to hindus so far but a large number of moderate hindus eating eggs.

What Hindus are taught by priests (Brahmins) about eggs?
1)  Eggs are not considered suitable for consumption.
2)  Eating Eggs mean you are preventing the birth of an animal (hen/cock).
To me this has always militated against common sense. If you want to eat egg, go ahead and do so, but why label it vegetarian when it clearly isn’t? In reply, I have been told that eating egg is no less vegetarian than drinking milk or eating cheese. But don’t they understand?  - Akshay

The Vegetarian Society accepts egg to be vegetarian, according to their adopted definition. This makes it difficult for people who want to avoid egg, because the Vegetarian Society’s endorsement is no different for something with or without egg.
