    Don't think our eggs froze but they were pretty cold. The shells weren't cracked so would they still be able to eat?

    They are okay until that shell cracks, they could be somewhat cloudy in the white part if they were partially frozen.

    I've been collecting frozen eggs lately with our cold temps, due to the fact that I work all day and can't collect until dinner time. Haven't had any issues with them yet. I put them in the fridge and they're perfect by the time I use them.

    I will use frozen eggs for my own use if: they are clean, if the inner membrane is not ruptured. I crack them into the pan, and if the albumen sticks to the cracked area, I just cook it up for the flock. If the albumen comes out normally, I have it for breakfast. I never sell a "frozen egg", and am now warning my customers to let me know if they get an egg with a crack, and I'll make it right with the next dozen that they buy.
