    No idea. Our eggs keep fine for three months!

    Maybe it had tiny crack that you didn't notice?

    That's the only thing I can think of. I've kept eggs for months (and buttermilk for .... ever)

    That's just wrong. Are you sure the egg was not older?

    I learned from working in restaurants to rotate the food, always pulling the oldest stock out from the left and adding new on the right. I don't know what else to think.
