    Why is driving to work in a truck weird? I've only found frozen eggs when it is 10 and below. I'm surprised because it's still freezing outside and I haven't been warming my coop. Most of mine explode when they freeze. Had one that must have froze as it was coming out. It was elongated, thin, thin, thin and light in color. (brown eggs).
