We just found out that we have rats and have started a serious control plan. I'm pretty sure they haven't been around too long, because now that they're here, they're a total pain. I've been finding rat droppings in the nest boxes, and assume that the eggs are not fit to eat. There have been a few times when my husband and my work schedule has been crazy enough that we didn't collect the eggs and they sat out overnight. That will be happening no more. Even so, if the rats are walking around and leaving their droppings in the boxes, that means the litter is gross. Now, we have been eating the eggs for a while, obviously, with no problems. And since I don't technically know when the rats came, it's very likely we've eaten a few eggs exposed to the rat situation. Still, I don't want to be stupid. For those of you who've had rats, what do you do with your eggs?
