All my beautiful Australorps have started laying, but I just found a pile of eggs in a corner of our barn. For the most part they have been laying in the coop in their nest boxes. I have no idea how long they have been there. I have been checking the barn and surrounding area because we also have a Blue Swedish Duck Hen who has been laying and she does not always lay them in her favorite spot on the coop floor. How long are eggs good for in this awful 105 degree Texas heat. Should I just toss them? I also wonder because most of our girls lay during the day while I am at work and I do not always have time to come home for lunch. I am very diligent about checking as many times as possible but I really may have missed these. There is a rooster candidate but I do not believe he is actively breeding yet. He is only about five moths old. I am very, vey surprised a critter didn't come get them but they were in the corner of a stall and we do turn out are Great Pyrenese dogs at night. If anyone knows or has advice about retraining them as well let me know.
