How is a Chicken egg formed
A Chicken egg is formed when her ovary releases the egg yolk into the oviduct (the tube of which an egg passes through). If a rooster chooses to mate with the Chicken the egg will become fertilized and the yolk will soon become a chick. When the egg is laid the shell is soft but it then dries over time.
