How long can eggs sit in their boxes before they go bad??

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, I normally collect each day, but if I'm not able to collect for a few days or a week how long can eggs sit in the roosting boxes before the eggs need to be refrigerated????

I have someone that will give food n water but they don't want to collect the eggs

Thank you

:welcome Personally, depending on the weather I wouldn't eat eggs that weren't collected for a week. If it's just a couple days and the weather is cool/cold they should be ok. You may want to post in this forum http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/18/chicken-behaviors-and-egglaying for more info. Good luck to you.

If eggs are just left laying around, sooner or later some will get broken.  A hen will discover they are delicious. Other hens will notice and before you know it you have a group of egg eaters - a hard habit to stop.
