    Hey everyone, I got my very first eggs this morning. I am taking today and tomorrow off from work to finally build my henhouse and run, and the timing I guess is good.

    When I came outside this morning, I found my leghorn sitting on eggs. 3 whites, and 3 brown eggs. (the browns came from my Rhode Island Red).

    Since some of these eggs have probably been outside for a few days, are they still good to eat?

    Thanks,

    Tom

    Congratulations on your first eggs! I'm from the wintery north, so I'm not sure if the eggs are all right- mine would be frozen! [​IMG]

    It's been in the mid 80s.

    I just found 3 more eggs in my dog's house. [​IMG]

    Update: I decided to go ahead and eat them. Scrambled five of them yesterday morning. So far, I'm still alive and no ill effects.

    They tasted and smelled fine, and so I gave them the green light for consumption.
