    Ok..I don't think this poses a problem but I don't want to be known for selling eggs that aren't good! We sell them to a business man in town here so I want to make sure on this..

    It was below 0 the other day and when my hubby gathered the eggs and they weren't frozen but they were on their way to being frozen...

    we won't know for certain if they are froze or not? Or can you tell??? Are they still ok to sell or will they look weird???

    Thank you!!

    the eggs are still good.. however I would tell the man about it just in case something would come up..

    for instance, the yolk might break easier like for a fried egg.. I am not saying this will happen..

    we have used eggs that were froze so hard that the shell split.. they are OK..

    Hi JeninMn, I agree with jvls1942, the eggs should be fine, just tell the man ahead of time just in case. I`ve actually hatched out eggs that were near frozen this past March and had a great hatch. Hope this helps.

    As long as the shell didn't crack, I'd think they be fine.
