As I was draining the ducks' kiddy pool today I found an egg at the bottom. I'm not sure how old it is, because I only drain this pool every 2-3 days. But it's not cracked and was not floating. Do you think it's still safe to eat? I'm not worried about the lack of refrigeration, but the immersion in the poopy water. Would bacteria get in through the shell? Does the waxy coating help prevent that? I just hate to waste food, especially home-grown... The ducks have only begun laying, and I've never before found an egg in the pool. Should I do something to prevent this from becoming a habit? I used to shut them up in their duck house overnight, but lately I've been letting them stay out in their pen. Usually I find the eggs in the house or around the side of the pool. I appreciate your imput, thank you!
