My chickens just started laying (that we know of) a little over a week ago. Yield has been fairly low and sporadic, but that's normal for new layers so I didn't think anything of it. This morning, though, I found one of them in a tiny hole one of the dogs had dug back into the bank near a retaining wall. There were a dozen eggs of varying sizes in there. I don't know how long these things have been sitting outside, but I'd say no more than a couple/three days in most cases. (There are a couple really tiny ones that I assume are older, but most are bigger than the ones I got Monday and Tuesday.) Should I pitch them, or can I use them? Even if they're not safe for us to have, could I scramble them for the various critters?
