    My EE laid this morning, but there is a crack on one end of the egg. Shoul I just dispose of it?

    Scramble it up, shell and all.. with shell very well crushed... & feed it back to chickens. They'll love you for it & won't associate it with what's in their nesting boxes.

    If it's not leaking, the membane may still be intact. Eat soon, and enjoy.

    I accidently dropped an egg and it cracked. Went up to the kitchen cooked it up and ate it. Found another egg in the yard with a crack in it. Thought the dogs had stolen it. Cracked it in a bowl. OMG the stench. I think the dog found it in the yard cracked it, knew better and left it.
