Yes they can. A vegetarian abstains from meats, and egg is not meat.

A vegan, on the other hand, abstains from all animal products in his/her diet, which would include eggs.

A person who is classified as a traditional "vegetarian" usually eats milk and egg products, but not meat. This describes most vegetarians. However, there are vegetarians known as "ovo-vegetarians" who do not drink milk but eat egg products. Vegans, however, are vegetarians who eat absolutely no animal products, including meat, milk, and eggs. This variety will not drink milk.

No. Vegetarians do not eat fish. Vegetarians do not eat any animals.

Vegetarians can eat birds but then they are not vegetarians any more. Some vegetarians eat eggs.

Lacto-vegetarians eat dairy, but don't eggs or other animal products. Ovo-vegetarians eat egg products, but don't eat dairy or other animal products. Ovo-lacto vegetarians eat dairy and eggs but nothing else that comes from an animal. Pure vegetarians/vegans eat nothing that comes from an animal, dead or alive.

There are many kinds of vegetarians. Some eat eggs and dairy products. Those types of vegetarians are known as "Ovo-Lacto Vegetarians." There are also vegetarians, known as vegans, who eat no animal products, whatsoever, including eggs, dairy, and honey. Many vegetarians give up eggs because of the known suffering that exists within the egg industry, and some vegetarians give up eggs for health reasons.
