    My kids gathered eggs and left them in the sun for 2 days it's been about 90 degrees, should I toss these eggs?

    I learned on the food network that if you place an egg in a cup of water, if it sinks and stays on the bottom it's good, and if it floats it has gone bad. That's how I test mine when I'm not sure if I got them collected quick enough.

    If I have any question about an egg, I toss it.
    It's just not worth it to me.
    ETA: I used to feed questionable eggs to my dog, but we only have the one dog now and she can't eat them.

    You could always finish cooking them and feed them back to the chickens.
