ARE THESE EGGS STILL GOOD?

I often let my chickens roam the yard. I found a nest of eggs in my flower bed. How do I know if they are still good or too old? Should I just throw them out?

Eggs float because the air cell is bigger, so an older egg. 'Sinkers' might be fresh, or they might be rotten, just still heavy.
As a screening test, not terrible. As truth, not so good every time.
Eggs are cheap, why risk it?
