    I have been out of town since Friday and I am going to be back home tonight. Can I eat the eggs my chickens have laid since friday? Is there a chance they are bad? Its been about 75 degrees outside... not really hot.

    Thanks

    I would not eat them. It is best to get the eggs the day they are layed and either eat or put them in the fridge. At 75 they will have been too warm too long.

    You ever hear of a 40 year old egg. That egg is just find to eat as long as there's no blood in the egg white.

    I would eat the eggs, but I would make sure I cooked them.

    They are probably fine. You can check them by putting them in a bowl of water. If they sink, they should be OK. If they float, no.
