    So lastnight I went out and found that my white leghorn had a broken egg inside her she was on the box trying to push the shell out. I left her be and went out this morning and she's up and alert and seems fine I didn't see any shell but they probably ate it but I'm still worried I don't wanna lose her. What should I do?

    You should check her for any remaining shell and if found you should pull it out with a tweezer.Otherwise I dont know because it has never happend to me.Sorry!
