    We are new to backyard chickens and our Americana's just started laying eggs on Saturday. Last night we went to eat Sunday's eggs and one of them is hardboiled. It had only been in the 70's here in Florida and the eggs were only outside about 2-3 hours. What on earth happened? I can't find any info. The rest of their eggs are great.

    Although the temperature outside the coop was 70, I wonder if there was more of a heat build-up inside the coop.

    I suspect someone is playing an early April Fool's joke on you.

    This would be my guess too. Any chance you could post a picture? Did it look like a normal hard boiled egg?
