    Hi everyone :)
    I have a Q if a hen lays a egg in the coop when it is 90 degrees is it still safe to eat if it is in there when we get back home to collect them? it has been warm here and we check in the am and afternoon and evening but what if it is in there all day or something? TY

    Totally fine. 90 degrees is still cooler than the inside of the chicken.

    Just pick them up as often as you can. If one is suspect, do the "float test".
