    Ok so I went in my coop to gather the eggs and I saw one on the floor under the bedding so who knows how long it’s been there any way it had a big crack down its side and it looked like one of the chickens pecked it or something so I cracked it open outside and it had a week old if not older embryo in it and it was still alive i feel bad. I have no broody hens and I’m not really sure but the temp outside has been in the 100 I am in Texas so we do get a lot of humidity, there is another egg on the floor bye were it was do I leave it and see if it hatches or put it in the Bator
