I know this isn't a big deal to experienced chicken owners...but as a new chicken owner I was quite thrilled to find the first egg in the nest box this morning. Kind of hard to get any non-chicken-owning friends excited about this so I decided to post it here. I was amazed at how warm it was! I grew up on a dairy farm and often drank warm, frothy milk right from the cow on cold winter nights so I shouldn't have been surprised that the egg was warm but somehow I hadn't expected it. I could've carried it around as a hand warmer! I assume I must have found it pretty quickly after it was laid. About how long will an egg stay warm to the touch after being laid? I'm interested if anyone has any feedback.
