    I tried to put cardboard in the nesting box but they found a way around it! and for 3 days strait my BR has cracked her eggs (I swear she stands strait up to lay an egg!) I looked the egg over and it looks like the inner layer is still in tact and one of them only has hairline fractures. Should I toss them? Or are they safe to eat?

    If you collect them that day then they are fine.

    I got one like that from the store. I fed it to the dog to be on the safe side, but I'm sure it was really still good.

    If I accidentally crack an egg when collecting, I use it up right away. Just as long as it was pretty clean to begin with. If my chickens did it while on the nest, I cook it up for them and feed it to them. I have a BO that will crack eggs if I don't keep enough straw down.
