    I'm going out of town this long weekend and I won't be able to collect my eggs til mon evening. It's hot here in the 90s. I only have one laying right now so we're talking about 2 or 3 eggs. Do I have to throw them away after sitting in the heat 2 days?i should be able to get Fridays egg but not sat sun egg and Monday egg would be mixed with the others. I'm having trouble finding someone to get them for me.

    If it were me, I would throw the eggs away. I wouldn't want to risk eating a bad/spoiled egg-- eggs can spoil very quickly in the temperatures you are describing. It is your choice, though.

    Do the float test on them when you get back?
