Are they safe to eat or do I toss them?

    I have eggs that are NOT floating but when candled they have spots on the shell. Should I throw these out or will they be fine to cook? I read that these are signs of bacteria.

    My first question is how old are the eggs? The spots on the shell might just be a porous shell, or just coloring, but if you don't know how old they are then I wouldn't take a chance.

    I have eggs that I've candled that have splotches of light and dark because they're porous. Since I collect every day I'm not worried about eating them. [​IMG]: Angelique
