How long to eggs stay fresh?

I am fairly new to chicken keeping and I am curious to know how long eggs stay fresh. I have read conflicting advice on the internet, saying anywhere up to 3 months if they are kept in the fridge. I know about the test in a bowl of water, but can anyone tell me the general guideline?

We buy ours but almost straight from the chickens bottom!

We've not kept them longer than 6 weeks in fridge but they seem ok.

I did read somewhere if you cracked them you could freeze them..... hmm

Frankly we love eggs and they never last long enough to tell.

Gosh, ages and ages for me and I don't even keep them in the fridge.

I don't know for sure, but would be reluctant to eat them beyond 2-3 weeks.
