[Tweeters] Robin's egg Question

While walking, I cam across a intact robin's egg laying in the dirt at the edge of a parking lot.

Can any of you Tweeters tell me:

Can an egg be stolen from a nest without being broken?

Could the mamma robin have HAD to just stop where she was and lay her egg?

Are there any other senarios where a undamaged robin egg could have ended up on the ground?

Do any ground nesting birds lay robin's egg blue eggs?
