    once an egg has cracked i toss it no matter what fear of contamination is the bigest fear for me...

    last year i would loose 1 out of every 10 eggs from freezing BUT my coop was uninsulated and un heated for the most part. I had a little space heater and all the hens would gather around it when the temp really dropped past -20
