The short story is I got 7 dozen eggs. Some as much as
3 weeks old that sat in refrigerator with off & on power
for a several days. Below I’ll show how to test eggs for
safe use. Despite what I’m showing here, if you have any
doubt throw them out. The power outages were caused
by the Detwiler Fire, the first of many terrible fires Ca.
suffered in 2017. It came very close to these chickens
and ducks who’s eggs I buy. The fire came very close to
burning down my cousin’s home of 40 plus years in
Cathey’s Valley. It was very scary with thick smoke and
ash, daytime was like twilight in the house, and dark
outside. It was hard to see, hard to breath and hard to
think. Evacuations came and it looked very bad. The
fire had jumped the river at least twice, and the highway
more. It burned very hot through dense manzanita
brush. Many homes were lost.

Road end it says.
It’s really hard to get from pictures.
Egg testing, test in room temperature water.
Lay flat good egg.
Not quite flat still good, but use soon.
Up right use asap. or throw out.
Never eat an egg that floats.
About 3 dozen were good. These were unwashed
free range fresh farm eggs. If they had been from
a store, I won’t have bothered. Just thrown them
away. My cousin, her home, & cats are all fine.
Now fresh grasses are coming in.
