    Do the water test. If they float, throw them away if they sink then their still good. If your uncomfortable about them cook em up and feed to the birdies [​IMG]

    They should be fine. Mine sit on my counter, sometimes for a week or two, without problem. In Europe they dont refrigerate their eggs.

    I agree that the eggs are probably fine, but they eat a lot of stuff in Europe I'm not gonna eat. [​IMG]

    They'd probably be OK, the supermarket ones are probably older.

    Thanks all, just wanted to be sure. Will try the water thing just because I am always up for a experiment with the kids. Happy night all!
