    When it's hot out I have to collect several time daily, because it's so humid here, too. Depends upon where you are and what your climate is.

    Some folks never refrigerate their eggs, they just use them. I refrigerate them, because I sell them, but an overnight without refrigeration is no big deal.

    I try to collect mine every day, but sometimes I am just too lazy. But, yes, I always collect them at night, sometimes after dark.

    I collect eggs several times a day when I am here, but when I am gone working all day I collect when I get home.
