Eggs will last at least a week past their freshness date.

Put them in enough water to cover them completely. If they float on end then throw them out. If they lay on their side, then they are still fine to eat.

Your very welcome, also just a tip buy your eggs cold not warm, not the ones sitting next to the fridge.

Yes eggs do go bad. take one of the eggs, fill up a cup of water put the egg in it and if the egg floats, its bad.
