    Quote:If they are put into the frig right away after they are laid...they should be good for at least 2 months.

    If in doubt....you can drop an egg in a glass of water....if it floats toss it. As eggs age they loose moisture and an air pocket starts to form on the big end of the egg. If they are old enough to float you don't want to eat them.

    Yes, they last a long time..especially if you store them in the very back of your fridge where it is the coldest..................
