Hi everyone. I have two chikens, only one of which is laying age. I found this out because I locked her up one day and got an egg as a reward! Since then, she's been free ranging and sleeping in doors while I make the coop & run more secure. So, yersterday I found a pile of eggs. I don't know how long they've been there (nine eggs in all), but I know one was fresh because it was still warm. I also know that last weekend they were locked up in a small coop in the garage for the weekend while we were away. nine eggs in the fall is a lot for a single bird to be laying if she was born in July. On the other hand, the second one might now be laying too. So my dilema. I would hate to throw away nine eggs my chickens have laid, but I don't want to get sick. Is there any way to tell before eating them?
