Are frozen quail or chicken eggs still good?

I have quail laying eggs either during the night or very early in the morning. The temps here in Mich. have been in the teens overnight and it appears that some of the eggs are freezing. We check for eggs at morning feed at 5:30, again during the day and at evening feed at 5 p.m. Are the ones that freeze still OK to eat?

Being in FL, I don't have any experience with frozen/freezing eggs but I do want to welcome you here!

Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Yes, you can thaw them (assuming they don't crack open) and eat them afterward. :eek:) If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

I am also in MI and know exactly what you are talking about. When we have cracked eggs, I always worry about bacteria getting into the egg so those eggs always go to the dog or get cooked up and fed back to the chickens.
