Weren't those pickled?

These are pickled eggs. They're preserved in brine and/or vinegar. Slightly different, from a shelf life perspective.

We inadvertently did this when, as kids, one Easter egg was hidden too well to be found again. When it was eventually found a couple of months later, it was simply all desiccated inside by that point. No stink bomb effect at all.

The cells in them are alive. Unless not being fertilized means there are no living animal cells in them

Almost lost my 5 year old from friend's boiled Easter eggs left out overnight. Seems bacteria found it's way into the eggs, grew overnight, became Salmonella like. After the Easter Egg hunt, she spent 6 hours in and out of a coma. Was horrible - vomiting, bleeding and hemorrhaging. Hospital said probably bacteria from under fingernails. I will never forget them cutting her beautiful little Easter dress off her in the emergency room, and working to put IV's in her neck and leg.

To me, it's never worth keeping "if in doubt, throw it out".

You're right, I believe they were pickled, it's been a long time since I was in a bar that had them. The stink bombs don't always work but they do more often than not.
