    I can't find any information about this anywhere online... I'd like to take my sister some fresh eggs from my flock next week when I fly out for a visit. Will my eggs get through airport security in my carry-on bag? They are each less than 3oz, I think.

    Could I hijack a plane with a carton of raw eggs?

    Do they not count as liquid if they boiled?

    Security theater has become so ridiculous lately....

    You can try, but be prepaired to be stopped and have them confisciated.... I got stopped and delayed 40 minutes for one of these in my purse...

    "could be a detinator ma'am"...

    It could also be a way to keep my toddler quiet since you outlawed sippy cups, you twit.

    Add: yes they litterally DID take candy away from a baby.....

    I do not believe you can. I looked this up and I believe eggs are considered a liquid.

    You would have to fit them into your quart sized baggie that you take your shampoo and toothpaste in and I don't think you can get them in there.
