My ladies make about a dozen eggs a day and I was told the brown eggs make good easter eggs as far as nice colors . My wife wants to use the plastic fake ones (that open up for candy treats) for our easter egg hunt. Thats fine, but I am using the real eggs. Thats how I grew up. And I think the real ones will make it more of a real easter! So if I color 4 dozen (and I have been saving them up so I have older eggs to boil) eggs and as I remember as a kid we had them out and would eat them throughout the week. My question is: How long can hard boiled colored easter eggs stay out of the fridge and still be edible. I remember my mom kept them out on the table alot it seems. Thanks to all.
