    This morning when I went out to open the chicken door and collect the eggs I found and egg in the outdoor run. I hadn't noticed it yesterday when I went up to close the chicken door for the night. Probably because it was dark out. So it looks like it was out overnight. The temperature probably got to around 33 degrees F last night. Maybe colder. Is the egg ok or should I just chalk it up as a loss. My hens just started laying so I am very protective of every egg [​IMG].

    Thanks,

    Brian
