    i have had my eggs sit on my kitchen counter for 2 weeks or more and put them into the incubator and they have hatched.  I think it all has to do with how many roosters you have with your hens.  the rule of thumb is 1 rooster to 5 hens.  '

    Now if you are not incubating and want eggs to eat once the eggs are in a cool place a week on the counter should be fine, as long as you keep those eggs cool.

    The best way to tell if an egg is still alright is place it in a glass or tub of water. If it rises to the top it is rotten, if it sinks it's fine to eat.
