Generally, I recommend adding light the first year and then allowing them to molt their second winter and then each subsequent winter. If you are not using additional light, then this is perfectly normal. Chickens require 16 hours of light daily to stay at peak production.

If you are supplying supplemental light, then reduce the supplemental light to a point where the birds are only getting eight hours of light.

Using 2x2 boards with rounded edges would be even better for your birds. Their additional feathers, covering their feet and small combs allow them to thrive through colder weather. Anything we need to do now to ensure good fertility of eggs come spring?

Make sure to keep drafts out, and they have plenty of clean, dry bedding and you should be good to go. I know they won't really be fertile until around March in Michigan.

But yes, the egg should be fine to eat as long as you are cooking it thoroughly.

I got my chickens a new house with 2x4s for their roost.

If you have healthy birds, you should not have any problems.
