    Being a newbie chicken owner, I am wondering how freezing affects eggs? I noticed today that the sole, lonely egg I collected appeared to be pretty much frozen solid? I imagine it will defrost in the refrigerator. Will it affect the quality of the eggs?

    Thank you for the link Woodsmort. Since my eggs don't appear to be cracked so far I guess it is all good! Thanks again.
