I found a hidden clutch of eggs today in a dog crate that I had "abandoned" in an area outside of tools and things I wont use until spring. I know...I know...my stupidity for leaving something that they can get into, oops. Anyway there were about 15 eggs and I don't know how long they had been there. One indication that it's been a while is that my Barred Rock apparently started laying. I had 4 eggs from her (no one else lays that color) and I don't know if she would go right to laying one a day so it's at least 4 days old but could be older. We've had some rain here but there wasn't any water inside the crate and the eggs aren't wet. Are they still okay to eat? I don't plan to try and hatch them or anything and no one was setting on them.
