I gathered three eggs from the hen house around 9 am this morning. One was warm and lovely; another was frozen solid with small cracks in the shell; the third was frozen and pecked open (photo above). I suspect the girls laid eggs so early this morning that they were frozen by the time I retrieved them. We are so very tired of sub-zero temperatures. (Beta-dog gets to eat the broken egg.)
