    I worked late last night and woke up late this morning and when I let the birds out there was 1 white egg. It had some small cracks on it and had some moisture on it... now that it has been inside for 15 minutes I noticed the cracks have disappeared. Just wondering if its ok to eat or is it garbage? If it is edible, do I have to eat it now or can it sit a few days?

    I think that'd be an egg I fed back to the chickens or the dog. I wouldn't eat it. The cracks probably dissapeared because the absorbed some moisture.....and germs. Just my opinion.
