how long after being laid will an egg be good for unrefrigerated
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.
