    Our 'easter egger' has decided to make a nest in my roses. We JUST found 9 eggs in the nest and 2 loose in the immediate area. It's been hot here (80's-90's in the sun)- is it a wash, should I just toss them, or could they still be safe? I soaked them in egg wash to clean them up, but they are actually stained.... should I say- eeek!
    Much thanks.

    Toss them...She could have been sitting on them for a while and then left them there. I wouldnt eat them. [​IMG]
