    I am a first timer. We just finished our coop & run today and got 12 adult chickens & 1 rooster from an elderly friend who was ready to give them up. One of the chickens was broody and sitting on an egg for about 2 weeks. We carefully moved her egg to a nest but when I put her in the coop, she went crazy, got out of the pen and flew into the woods nearby. We searched for hours to no avail. Now what?! I'm so upset that of all 13 chickens, the one I was most careful with is the one I lost! What do I do with the egg?
