I am thrilled. We just got our first eggs ever!!! Three eggs, after losing our first flock to raccoons in September we got more chicks that same month and they've made it to egg time!!! Long time coming!! My question is: one of the eggs was layed outside the nest box and was dirty (as you can see). Are these eggs ok to eat?? I don't want to eat bacteria but I also hesitate to waste eggs. Feedback would be great. Also, we have golf balls in the boxes to encourage egg laying there. Any other suggestions to prevent laying outside box?
