are they safe to eat? Just have been out there awhile and I didn't know it. I was looking in their nest boxes, but they chose to lay where I store the hay. What a bonanza! My first go at this so want to be sure they are ok to eat! Thanks
The float test works great. I'm not sure what the weather is like where you live, but the hidden pullet nest I found a couple of weeks ago had 24 eggs in it and they were all fine--hadn't been over 70 here and mostly in the high 50's to mid 60's.
Must have been the day for finding stashes of eggs.
I have been complaining that the girls aren't laying and put it down to the rain we've been having.
Yesterday when I went out to them, I checked amongst the lillies and found 12 eggs!! Hooray.
The float test showed that they were okay.
