I read somewhere that nonfertile eggs keep longer then fertile eggs. I am now curious if that is true and if so, if it's a very important thing (1 month vs. 4 months kind of thing). Also, if fertile eggs were kept on the counter during the warm months of summer...would the embryo start to develop? I have searched and searched for the answer on this site but it seems no one has asked this specific question (although I did get great info on how long eggs will keep). So those are my questions and I would love to get answers...but don't be TOO scientific, as I'm not so good at big words .
