    Our girls were hiding their eggs again and I found two this morning that were laid either yesterday or the day before. It has been warm here; about 90 degrees in the afternoon. Are they safe to eat? or should I boil them and feed them back to the girls.

    Myself, when I find Hidden eggs, i just boil them and feed them back to the girls. [​IMG]

    If I were you I'd crack them into a bowl and sniff just to check, but you'll be alright if it smells alright.

    I'll leave eggs on the windowsill for several days before eating them in your sort of weather. Never been poisoned yet.
