I would like to know if the eggshell that covers a chicken egg is
formed after the hen has laid the egg. I was told that when the egg
is laid there is a semitransparent jelly like membrane that covers
the egg, and that this membrane then turns into the eggshell and
that's how farmers can distinguish fecundated eggs from nonfecundated
