    We found a bunch of eggs that have been layed under the bushes. I had been looking for this to happen but couldn't find any eggs until today. We marked and left some bate eggs but collected the others. We candled and floated the eggs. The pullets have been laying about a month but I think these have only been layed in the last 2 weeks. We removed all the eggs that had even slight air-sacs. We will eat the eggs that had air-sacs. Would you sell the good eggs? There are 2dz good eggs.

    I wouldn't. Any of my eggs that were sitting in the coop for a weekend stay with me and I crack them one by one to make sure they are okay. My customers only get the ones I know were collected timely and are fresh.

    I guess you are right. I have always only sold the eggs layed in the coop and collected every day. Thanks for setting me straight.
