    They should be fine.
    If you do live in an area that freezes, your eggs may freeze but they will be fine to eat scrambled unless the shell cracks, then I throw them away or cook them scrambled and feed back to chickens.

    If a broody hen lays ten eggs. It took her ten days to lay them. Just layed eggs go dormant to give the hen time to accumulate enough eggs to set. So no worries you should be fine. But after you refridgerate them its a different story. Dont let them sit out more than a few hours.
