One of the hazards of raising chickens is collecting eggs in your pocket and then forgetting about them. Usually this works out OK, especially if your hens are getting enough calcium in their diet. Sometimes, however, you inadvertently crush them. It is a good idea to go out with the sole purpose to collect the eggs, rather than collecting them while you happen to be out & about (insert my Canadian accent, for the perplexing delight of my American friends).

I’m looking forward to your eggs!
I am looking forward to sharing them with you!
Ah! I do this, too. Once was enough to convince me never to put them in the same pocket as a cell phone. Blech!
