I see alot of roadside stands up here in NY selling brown eggs...I'm always tempted to stop and buy some but its kind of hot up here now and I don't see any ice boxes in those stands to keep them eggs from going long will those thangs last in the heat?

If we lived in a democracy, you'd see lot more roadside stands, selling everything that can be farmed. Unfortunately, we can only blame our own poorly-advised voting habits and those bearing the title "incumbent". I say let's change it! :)

Eggs can be laid with salmonella in them so we found out. If they are in the heat for an extended period, make sure you have fully cooked them before eating (hard yolk). I always crack them into a separate bowl no matter what to check them out. Nutrition wise, the chicken experts say the only difference in brown eggs versus white (given the same age of egg) are the presence of the pigment that makes the shell brown for whatever that is worth.

Every once in awhile some of my hens will find a new hiding place to lay her eggs (they free range, and can cover quite a territory).

While I never sell those, we usually do keep them for our own use...if they're more than a couple of days old (maybe up to a week or so) we will put them in a separate bowl in the 'fridge, use them first, and always crack them into a bowl or cup (not into something where it will ruin other food if it is bad).

So far in about 4 years with our own hens, we've never had a bad egg and I suspect nobody selling to the public would let them sit as long as some of these.

So I'd say "don't worry" a day or two out of the 'fridge poses no danger. Fresh farm eggs are *so* much better than the crud they sell in the supermarket, you'll be glad you did!

You Noo Yawkers may get converted away from those pitiful pale drizzlin white-shelled eggs after all!

As long as they don't sit in the sun they should be fine for a day or so. Not to mention fresh eggs peel better when hard boiled if they are left on the counter overnight.

Well now. The fellow who wrote the chicken tractor book, last name Lee, I think first name is Andrew, also wrote a book telling about making his one acre back yard pay off well. If you will check it out, maybe a lot more of us will be out in the country buying up those 1 to 5 acre ranchettes they are dividing up farms into. Then by joining into co-ops we can have co-op owned sales places. AS far as salmonella goes, I would rather trust home raised, free range, chicken (in a chicken tractor) than factory raised eggs from hens which have been fed antibiotics which promote antibiotic resistant strains of salmonella, which they are now talking about raising viruses which will eat the bacteria and where does that leave the stuff that lives in our own intestines that helps us to digest out food. Talk about short sighted!!!!!Check out some of those factory farms, they are scary places.
