Eggs get cracked on the small end from landing in the box sometimes.

    Are they safe to refigerate? Or through away?

    My girls have a bad habit of removing the bedding from nests...get bored I guess or too much HGTV......so when one hit it had a couple of small cracks on the end. I scrambled it up in microwave and fed to dog.
    Me, I don't eat anything that MAY have a germ in it. LOL Just paranoid.

    I've eaten them. I'm still here. Use them for personal use, not for sale.

    We get frozen eggs that split here. I thaw them a little and peel them like a hard boiled egg...put them in a custard bowl, cover with Saran wrap, and put in the refrigerator. We use them in a few days.

    Unless the egg is really dirty I use them for my breakfast.
    if really dirty, I crack & feed to the dogs or the cook for the chickens.

    Should be alright so long as it isn't leaking... if it can get OUT stuff can get IN

    I put padding in the bottom of the nest so even if they kick out the nest material, the egg has a softer landing than wood.
