    This is the first summer for my girls, Myrtle, Margaret, Raven and Chicky.
    I check for eggs in the early morning, at noon and then again when I
    get off work. Are the eggs safe to eat when exposed to these high
    temp?

    Chicky has been going out of the fenced yard almost every day for
    a week. I would come home and shoo her back in with the other
    chickens. I clipped her wings but she still got out. I followed her
    and found her clutch of eggs by the garden on our neighbors side.
    I collected the eggs, put her in the coop where sat on her eggs.
    She did not go back outside again. One baby chick hatched out of
    seven. I left them in for a week long to see if they would hatch.
    Chicky has one baby named "Bo" if it is a boy and "Bo Peep" if a girl.

    I will have to wait until tomorrow and go take Chidky's picture
    with her new baby. I let the other hens and roosters out and
    keep mother and peep in. Don't want the cats to think that they
    can have a free lunch.

    I would think that the eggs should be fine........as long as they aren't exposed to the DIRECT sunlight. Just my opinion tho!!!
