Yeah my wife, kids, and grandkids will all wait for the hens to get off the nest before collecting the eggs. They'll take as many as a dozen trips out to the hen house. Not me, I just reach under the hen and grab the eggs, don't even lift her up. Gotta a hold of one a while back that really set the hen off, seems it was still being laid when I nabbed it. So warm I almost dropped it.
