An egg starts off as an egg!

The journey of the egg begins at the hatchery where fertilized eggs from breeding flocks are placed in special incubators. Twenty one days later these eggs hatch into baby chicks. The chicks are then moved to a pullet barn, a special barn for young hens, where they stay for 19 weeks until they mature into hens. These hens are then transferred to the laying barn and begin laying eggs.
