    My 6 month old pullet laid her egg and it's her first time.I made her a nest for her to lay but she doesn't seem to like it so she laid under the stairs. but when i looked to the eggs it has little crack on the shell. can it still be developed into chick? plss help me.. i want to see the first chicks of my pullet..

    Theirs a chance it could still develop however it would probably be prone to infection. Also it probably wont develop as it is your pullets first eggs. They are usually too small and don't have all the orrect nutrients etc. If I were you I would wait until shes a little older.
