Every once in awhile, we get an egg with a tiny, tiny crack in the shell or a small dent. They aren't crushed, just getting hit on the nesting box when the hens stand up and lay their eggs. The ones that are very cracked or dented we don't eat. But, what about the ones with just a slight crack and nothing oozing out? We do have padding in the nest boxes, but the girls keep kicking it out.
