    You people are so lucky! Long story short, right now I have a breeding pair of hatch games and the first egg was layed on the 4th of July. I accidentally took the egg out of the nest on my daily rounds of egg collecting and chicken whispering. I took the egg to the house where I realized that I got a egg i wasn't supposed to (opps).
    Since I was going to let the hen set I planned to return the egg but got side tracked. So, later on that day I saw the towel I had layed the egg in sitting on the family golf cart, trying to clean up for the party to come I snatched the towel up and what-da-ya-know the egg go flying and splat! The hen hasn't layed any eggs since.
    So now I fear i won't have any babies for a while since the hen wasn't supposed to be laying anyway (she was too young)! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Best of luck with the laying. If it was a pullet egg, might never had been able to hatch out right anyways. Don't worry!

    Hopefully she'll be laying more eggs for you soon to hatch.

    Good luck
