I was wondering why my hens had taken a little break. Last night, I discovered that they hadn't at all. In fact, they were extremely busy the last two weeks, laying a huge pile under a prickly bush right next to the hen house. Now that I've removed all the eggs, at my own peril.... the rooster attacked my face while I was doing so, I hope they'll resume their egg laying in their nesting boxes inside the hen house.
Question: the eggs range from being two days old to 15 days old - I have no way of knowing how old which ones are. The days have ranged from 80 degrees for a high and the evenings down to 30 degrees. I have a rooster so I'm sure a certain percentage are likely fertilized. I'm inclined to throw them all away. Would the eggs be safe to feed to the dogs?
