How often do you collect your eggs? I am at the coop around 7:30 am. to do chores change water etc. I often see one egg from my 6 PR's. Then about 10:30 I'm there just to check say hi and again around 1:00 in afternoon generally does it for laying although occasionally we will find a straggler before they turn in for the night. I collect each time and refrigerate . After reading a food safety website that says eggs should never be left out , maintained at 40 degrees after an hour or they should be discarded . I'm thinking when my dog sitter comes when we are away surely I can instruct her to collect just once per day instead of having her running up there 24/7 !
