    I know this is a gross question, but, is it edible? It wasn't in the pool five minutes, so can I still bake with it? Be honest, I get a lot of eggs, so I'm not fiending for this one in particular, I'm just curious.

    I would think it would be just fine. At worst it would be the same as getting a little pool water splashed in your mouth. My question is how on earth did an egg get in the pool?

    Oh! In their kiddie pool, for the ducks. I change out the water every day or two. It wasn't the swimming pool.

    Oh whew!! Okay well I would still say yes you could eat it but I don't really know if you would want to if the water was really gross [​IMG] maybe just skip that particular egg lol

    In the pool or on the ground....not really that much difference, eh?

    The eggs that I get are so smeared with poop that I can't imagine that being in the pool water could be worse!
