    I am wondering what the guidelines are for gathering eggs for consumption during these hot days of summer. Are there any dangers posed by the eggs being in the nest all day when temps soar to around 100 degrees?

    The internal temperature of the chicken is 106 or so......so I don't have a problem with the eggs I pick up in the evening. I can't imagine there being a problem.
