    My hens have been raising chicks and weren't back to laying yet so I haven't been checking the nest boxes regularly. This morning I am in the coop and see two eggs in one of the boxes. The last time I looked was this past weekend when I was cleaning the coop. Nothing then. The weather since then has varied with the hottest being about 92 degrees outside the coop. Will these eggs be okay to eat?

    Yes. They are fine. After all, the inside of a chicken is ~101 degrees.
