    We went out of town for 4 days and I was wondering how long do eggs last in the coop because when we came back, we had 17 eggs in there:D and i dont want to waste all those eggs. Please help, thanks!

    Unwashed farm eggs will last up to a month without refrigeration. I myself wouldn't push it past a week or so. I collect eggs every day, but I have missed a day or so here and there so I'd say they would be fine.

    Hope this helps!
