    I usually collect eggs every evening but I wasn't able to for 3 days. I went out to the coop tonight and found my Dominique laying on about 15 eggs. I am not ready to hatch any yet so I collected them. My question is, are they okay to eat? They were very warm and I am a newbie to this and not sure if they are ok or not. Thanks in advance for your help.

    If she has been setting on them for 3 days, they have started to develop. You could eat them, but ---------------------
