I eat mine at 4-5 weeks old all the time. If refrigerated, they can even last longer - mother earth did a study where they lasted something like 7 or eight months as long as they were refrigerated and unwashed.I went to look at someone's coop and they gave me 5 dozen eggs that have been laid in the last 4-5 weeks and kept in fridge.
We took them but dh wants to throw them out. I put them in fridge.
What didn't you like,the taste or how hard they were to peel? Have you had fresh eggs before?
