i walked outside early this morning and most of the chickens was awake. to my surprise i saw a steaming egg laying in the grass in the run. i have never had this happen before and i have never gotten an egg that looks like this. it is a very very very pale brown i thought it was white at fist. it had just been layed because it was kinda wet and steaming when i found it. why would my chickens lay it on the ground when they have nestin boxes. it may have been my black australorp pullet. i dont think she is old enough to lay but maybe i think she is 5 months give or take a few weeks. do you think it could have been an unexperienced pullet that layed it in the grass. i know she was standing around the egg when i picked it up.
