So my bantams are laying tiny eggs and I decided that in a recipe, if I use two bantam eggs where it calls for one egg, that should sufice. Do you think so? Also, my mother acts like it's dangerous to eat these eggs and I'm sure yall have lots to say about that. I told her that they are fine, even if they sit in the heat for a few hours! We check for eggs twice a day but when I was gone for the weekend, my chickensitter didn't get the eggs. Should they still be safe? I tried the water test and even leave them in water in a bowl in the fridge. If they start rising some, I'll just throw them out. Is that a good or bad idea? I don't eat a whole lot of eggs, so how long do they last in the fridge? Out of the fridge? In the nest? Any info will be so helpful! I'm saving up the eggs for a quich.. I think I'll need like 16 bantam eggs though! lol. Wish I had another hen.. but bantams are hard to find!
