Ok, I really hope I'm not asking a "duh" question here ...So how long is it safe to leave the eggs in the coop before they're collected and stored for consumption? It's been three days since I've been able to go out and collect, so I felt better just disposing of them rather than taking a chance with contamination. My neighbor says she heard that people in Africa leave them out for weeks, as long as there's no rooster. I prefer not to put my family at risk while I check it out, though. Thanks!
