Can we keep eggs if they got frozen?

    We left the eggs in the coop last night, it got down to below 30 degrees. We cracked two open and they seemed fine. Can we still eat these? I didn't see any cracks on them as if they were broken from freezing.
    Thanks

    Try it and see. I haven't a clue, and I've wondered about it too. But it doesn't get cold enough here on a regular basis.

    When we get cracked eggs I use them immediately. Even if it's to give a treat to the dog or kittys. This time of year when we lock up the chickens at night we do a quick check for eggs.
