    Chickens like to lay closer to night time and I was away yesterday when I got the eggs this morning they were 5 frozen. Do I discard them? I put them in my house in a hurry so I could make it to work on time. I didn't kno if I should put them in the fridge or throw them away.

    As long as they are not cracked and leaking, they will be fine.

    they are on the counter bc I didn't want to mix them up in case. So even being on the counter when I get home they will still be ok?

    Yup, they will be fine. I never refrigerate my eggs. Because frozen/cold eggs sweat so much when you bring them inside (which washes off some of the bloom), I would eat them first.
