How much did the dozen cost? If it's 99 cents to two dollars, might be worth throwing out juuust in case.

Mine have never been in the fridge. The hens lay them and then we grab them and bring them in the house.

According to the American Egg Board website, one day of room temp should be OK for your eggs.

Reading the link, refrigerated eggs will last 4-5 weeks. Room temp eggs age 7 times faster so your room temp eggs should be OK for 4-5 days.

here in Germany eggs have two best before dates on...
the first one is the one that shows you how long you can use them when stored outside the fridge.. usually two weeks.. either use them or place them in the fridge now.
the second date tells you the absolute date, when it runs out even in the fridge... that is ten days after the first...

Isn't there also a test you can do? Put it in a glass of water and if it sinks the egg is good, but if it floats it's bad????

They'll be fine...just go ahead and use them up. They used to pack them in straw and ship them to Alaska during the gold rush. Sounds like a good time to make deviled eggs!

it all depends on the room temp of your kitchen. if it is fairly cool, in the 60's F or lower (below 20 degrees C), then you should be ok. still, i would do the water glass test to be sure.

My neighbor just came back from a Texas hunting trip and said it was hot as blazes where he was. If you are in that climate, I don't think I would risk it. If your kitchen is kept cool, they may be okay.
