    Our Roxy's very first egg. It is smaller than I thought it would be, but it seems very healthy. The shell is hard and the egg seems heavy and dense.

    I coop'd them up at 5p. yesterday afternoon. I had some early appointments and couldn't let them out until about 9:30a. this morning. I don't know when the egg was layed. HOW LONG CAN AN EGG REMAIN OUT (NOT REFRIGERATED) AND STILL BE GOOD??
