    Yes, collecting eggs at the end of the day is no problem.

    Yes, the eggs will be fine if you gather them in the afternoon. There are times when I get busy and don't collect them for a couple days. No problems yet.
    If you think about a hen that is going broody, she will lay eggs for several days before she is ready to sit. The ones that are a couple days old do fine to hatch, so I'm sure they are fine to eat.
