I'm a little confused. If she's broody she will not lay an egg. It being cold it's something that can happen with new broodies. They dont realize that the egg is not viable. I would check it and if it's no good then toss it

Can you candle it? If it's cold my guess is it's no good. Better to throw it out now rather than wait for it to explode and be a disgusting mess.
