    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....

    thanks.

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

    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.
