    I feel like i remember reading in the past about eggs that have been left out in the cold, but can't find the posts...so, we havd to make a quick 3 day trip for a funeral and no one gathered the eggs for us...the coop probably stayed right at freezing (there was a thin layer of ice on the water...question is about the eggs-does the cold and potentially frozen hurt the eggs - can they be eaten as normal. thanks

    as long as the egg isn't cracked...eat away! hatching is highly iffy. If you are still worried...boil...crush...feed to birds...they will be very happy
