|Raw eggs last longer than hard boiled ones. But if you're ever not quite sure about whether or not an egg has gone bad you can do the float test.
Fill a bowl big enough for the egg to float in, a wide glass works too. Put the egg in, if it floats, its bad, if it sinks you're good to go. Grandma used to have a weekly egg route, that's how we sorted the good from the bad, and we didn't refridgerate the eggs either. They sat on pallets on the freezer until delivery day. Wouldn't recommend doing that with previously refridgerated eggs though.
I've shoved hard boiled eggs in the dogs' Kongs before. They enjoyed that. I also played a mean trick on them. They always get their eggs whole and raw, but I'd never given them a whole shell on hard boiled egg. Tossed each of them a hard boiled egg one night. There was much confusion and priceless looks as they tried to crack the eggs to get the yummy gooey center.
You could see if your butcher can order you chickens, whole, back and necks, feet. I consider feet a bone and use them with boneless meals sometimes.
