I have 3 free range pullets, one has been laying for a whil but i lost track of her eggs when it started raining a lot. One I have never seen lay or even try until 2 days ago and she used a nesting box and tried a spot on the front porch (might have been laying and I didn't know it the dog may have got her eggs) And then there is one who has been laying every day in the chimera on the porch (yes in the ashes!) since last Thurs. I found 13 under the coop today!! I would assume since they are dry and not covered in mud that it could only be since the last down poor which was last Thursday but I could be wrong. I am not sure how dry it stays under there in the rain. The ultimate question is IS IT SAFE TO EAT THESE EGGS??? or should I toss them all since I don't know how old they are? I would rather not crack open a rotten one! yikes!
