So I'm not the best at collecting my eggs daily. I usually get to it about twice a week. In the summer, if I don't collect them first thing in the morning, I throw them away. But in the winter, how important is it for you to collect asap if you plan on eating them? IE this week, I collected 4 eggs in the beginning of the week, and 4 at the end. It's been pretty cold all week, maybe max 50 but the last 4 days have been in the 30's? I washed them off (most were clean already, but I like to give them a rinse) None were poopy. I tested them with the water trick, and they sunk like rocks. BUT, interestingly enough, the eggs I bought from the supper market that I've been using during my egg laying lull, stood on end. (well, they are about a month past sell by). But anyway, how if they are clean and sink, is it bad to eat those who have been sitting in there for a few days to a week if it's cold?
