    I honestly thought it was too cold out for my silkies to start laying eggs.... I could hardly believe it when I found these in the corner of the coop (not in any of the 5 nest box's) this morning! They felt like they were frozen [​IMG] !

    [​IMG] On here they've said not to worry about frozen eggs unless they've cracked. [​IMG] And people are kinda divided if they have, either eat them right away or feed them to the animals.

    That is the best feeling! My one RIR just started laying a week ago and so far her eggs are always in the same corner of the coop. Congrats!!!
