    Eggs that have not been damaged or cracked should be put back in the nest, because if they get too cold, the developing baby bird will die.

      but before putting the egg in the nest make sure that the egg is not rotten if it is do not put it back in the nest

    It's an old wives tale about not touching the eggs (look it up on the net), if it doesn't appear to be damaged, put it back.  If the bird intentionally knocked it out of the nest because there may be something wrong with it, they will knock it out again.

    In that case, there's no point putting it back in.

    I heard that birds can recognize the smell if some one touches it's egg and they does not accept some one touching them

    sometimes hens will through out the eggs that are not good, or you will find them on the side of the nest.  They know when something is wrong with the egg and it's not going to hatch.

      because they are rotten and rotten eggs cannot be hatched
