No, I haven’t washed them. Thank you so much for your feedback! I truly appreciate it!They are fine... we purposely leave eggs out for two weeks bc they are the best to hardboil. If you’re worried though you can always do the egg float test. There are conflicting theories on whether this works or not but we do it anyway with any eggs over two weeks unless they have been refrigerated.
You didn’t wash them, right?
Someone probably picked that number because of the length of incubation,Clean, unwashed eggs can sit out for approximately 21 days, ideally at cooler temperatures and 50-55% humidity. I don't think it's a coincidence that that's how long it takes to incubate them
For sure, it's a just good general rule. I have seen outside of the united states that unrefrigerated eggs are kept in stores approximately a month, and the ones in the U.S. that are washed and refrigerated can be 2 months old before they are purchased. I have personally incubated eggs that were just over a month old and had a good hatch out of them. But, I've also kept quail eggs on the counter for a few weeks and had some gross ones when I cut them open. I was just trying to reassure the poster that 2 week eggs are likely fine.Someone probably picked that number because of the length of incubation,
but it really doesn't apply to how long they can sit on the counter.
