Separate names with a comma.

Found a nest of eggs. I'm trying to wrangle my hens to lay *BEFORE* I let them out to FR.
I hear if they sink they are good and I would say those are sinkers
I thought the same thing too about sinking eggs until I cracked one open. I would just crack them separately into a bowl before using.
Now, like you, I knew the eggs 'may have been' bad. I got them from my neighbor and he warned me that he didn't collect for 3 days (in GA) and that some of the ones his wife cracked weren't any good. He told me that when you go to crack them if the yolk is already broken don't bother to crack the rest of the way. Eggs get really watery/runny when they spoil so when you go to crack it, it is very noticable, even before the smell hits. All the eggs that had their yolk intacted were fine. Hope this helps!
