Hi folks, I have 4 khaki campbells. I have 3 hens and a drake named donald. They are pets for my children, fertilizers for my garden and egg layers for the refrigerator. My question is about the eggs. How long can the eggs sit out before its too late to harvest them. They just started laying the other day and i dont want to get sick if the eggs have been out on the elements for too long. The hens seem to be dropping one to two a day now. The problem is they drop them in the kiddie pool I have set up for them, so I have to dump it then collect them, there is no telling how long they have been in there. Last night I cleaned it and this morning there were eggs in it again. Is it ok to toss them in the fridge since its only been one night, or do I have to get them sooner, as they drop them. Its obvious the girls have no interest in sitting on them, which is ok. 4 ducks is enough for me. Thanks!
