Examine the eggs closely right away when gathering, they can crack slightly then the crack can close back up.

I do let my customers knows that the egg may have frozen, but not cracked,

which can lead to some funky texture when frying or poaching,

but they are fine for scrambling or baking.

OK i'll do that!

Thanks!:D

If you collect them regularly you have warm hands more often 😆

I always check if the internal skin is torn or not, if it's torn I throw them, but if it's still connected I wash them in warm water and then the shell connects.
