We only started getting eggs a few weeks ago, and are only getting 2-3 a day (sometimes only 1) from our 5 hens, so I'm sure only some of them are laying yet. This afternoon I went to the coop and there was 1 egg in each egg box (we have 2 egg boxes), and I found one on the ground in the middle of the run.
This was the first time I've found an egg somewhere other than the coop. Is there a reason for this, or just some random weird chicken thing?
Also, it is very dirty (and I'm assuming poopy because it was on the ground in the run). I can't wash it until I'm going to eat it though, right? I really don't want to put it in a carton with other eggs like that :-(
