Depends on the temperature - if it's really hot, not more than a day or two. If it's cold, they can last much longer, like a week. Also, if you have a rooster, keep in mind that hot temperatures can start the eggs developing.

It would have to be REALLY hot for the eggs to start developing.

100 degree days are pretty common here in CA. Just got home last night from a weekend away - I collected eggs and since it's been in the 90's all weekend, I cracked them so I could throw them away and check fertility. I had about a handful that had started development. Not an embryo yet, but still developing.
