    Storebought eggs usually have a code on the carton that tells you how old they are.

    I've gone past the sell-buy date on the carton a few times. I don't really notice a difference.

    I DO notice a HUGE difference between old store eggs and old farm eggs.

    I have read on here somewhere that if you put an egg in water and it sinks, it is safe to eat. If it floats, it's garbage. I can't vouch for this though.

    Quote:Eggs in the store have a date on the side, you can tell how old they are, one number is the date they are packaged ( usually one day after lay or sometimes same day) and the next date is the use by date which is exactly one month after the other date. I don't think they can be sold after the use by date so eggs you buy should be under a month old.
