    Ok, So i've gotten a couple of eggs now and the whole family is excited. But I have a couple of questions that I'll need to know for the future:

    How long can an egg sit in the coop before it spoils?

    Once retrieved from the coop and resting nicely in my fridge... how long is an egg good for once refridgerated?

    Igather my eggs daily, usually in the evening before roosting time and I don't wash them just know off the shavings and keep them in a bowl on the counter. I do mark them with the date and use the oldest ones first, but seems like there have been threads on here that they are good for awhile.
