My sister in law gave me a dozen eggs a month ago, laid at home by her own chickens. I still have 6 left, will they be mouldy? Should I chuck them or can I still use them?
I've often wondered this - dh's grandparents are forever giving us eggs.<lurks>
Something to do with how they float in water, hang on a sec...
They last at least 3 weeks. You can tell if they are ok by putting them in a bowl of water - if any part of the egg touches the bottom of the bowl it is fine, if it floats then it is bad.
I've cracked open an off egg once... there's absolutely no doubt about it when you do that... peeeeooooooh!!!!
Fab thanks - just done my eggsperiment out of 8, 4 good and 4 bad.Thank you for your advice!
