I'm wondering how long an egg will stay good in the nest before it ruins? My chickens just started laying and are laying anywhere from 9am-2pm. I try to get them as soon as they lay but that's hard to do. I just want to make sure a few hours won't make a difference.

Eggs should last for days depending on how hot your weather is. Here in Mexico the people in the colonia do not have refrigeration and let eggs stand out for days. Even the stores here sell their eggs with out refrigeration.
