I'm not sure where to ask a question about eggs. But, I decided to try this section. I cracked an egg and I got a fishy smell from it. I don't know what would cause it, could it be rotten? How long can an egg sit in a nest before it is collected? We usually gather eggs a couple of times a day, but I don't know for sure how long they have been there when we get them later in the afternoon. How long do eggs last in the fridge? I'm now nervous to eat the eggs.
