    Today I found a hidden nest under some branches that our hens have apparently been laying in. ( found it because one if our more vocal layers was singing her head off over there so I went to investigate) There were 7 eggs. Three were very dirty and partially buried so I threw those away. The other four are clean and lay flat in the bottom if a bowl of water. Since they pass the water test, is there anything I should worry about?

    I call these "bush eggs" since I find them in the bushes. I just make sure I eat them first. DH thinks they should all go, but I just bake them into something and he never knows.
