I obviously have one hen who sometimes lays an egg outside. The hens have been laying for about 6 weeks now. I've got 6 nesting boxes for the 14 hens.....which ought to satisfy the most picky of girl chickies, but not this one. Don't have any idea which one it is. I just go out and there will be an egg on the ground...........and never in the same place, but never hidden. We've been having bitter weather here in Oklahoma the past few weeks and if this hen lays an egg early and I don't see it until later in the day, it's frozen. The one I picked up today was even cracked because of the freezing. I brought in all the eggs and put them away. But there's no way I'd sell an egg like that, so I grabbed another and had a couple of fried eggs for a late lunch/early dinner. The egg was definitely frozen, but thawed in the skillet as it cooked. So my question ( just because I'm a noobie at this chicken stuff ) is: is there any reason not to eat an egg that has frozen?
