    Hi everyone,
    No one I know can answer this one, so here ya go.. I took my roosters outta the chicken house a week-10 days ago. They now free-range around the place and provide horses w/ entertainment. Question.... when are my eggs for sure okay? I have 9 hens in their house, laying pretty well. I give my eggs away to co workers, and try to collect them each day, but I'm just terrified of giving my boss an icky egg.

    I guess I dont understand the question?? What do you mean Icky egg?? Rotten..It would take some time for an egg to go rotten, as long as you collect everyday you are fine. If you are refering to Fertile...dosent make any difference, as long as you dont have any hens setting. If collecting eggs everyday, they will be fine.
