One of my hens has a bad habit of escaping from a tractor extension we temporarily set up while working on plans for an ark - and we know she's been hiding her eggs as they're not in the coop with the others. Over the weekend, my daughter found a nest of 9 eggs in a geranium planter under her bedroom window. Hubby tossed them, which killed me seeing them go to waste. My question is...at least 9 days is a long time to not be refrigerated for some of them (she can be an on/off layer). The weather here in So. California hasn't been overly warm, and the eggs were in almost all shade daily and were cool to the touch - but how long is too long to go without being refrigerated? Thanks.
