    Well I have two chickens, One big red one and one furry footed black (young) one, well the furry footed one has been spending alot of time next door by the aboundon building, and everytime she goes over there i cant find her, Today i found her, with 10 eggs!! tiny tiny eggs, are they still eddable? or should I toss these? My other chicken lays them in the chickencoop and we get hers daily, As far as we know this is moomoo's first 10 eggs.

    If they were mine I would not eat them....Toss them and try penning her in the coop for a few days til she knows where to lay....

    If they are fertile you can move the nest and let her sit in a place where you have locked her in.

    I'm not sure about fertality, but you could do the candling thing and to tell if the eggs are bad because they're old, put them in water, and if they float, they're bad,and if they sink, they're good
