    My pekins have been laying eggs in filthy muddy duck-water. Does the protective coating make them safe to eat? I find them up to three hours after being laid. I love my duck eggs but don't want to get sick.

    Any opinions? Would you eat these eggs?

    Nope either toss or cook and feed to the dogs, but I'd most likely toss
