leaving fertilized eggs out on counter?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi, I know it's safe to leave unwashed eggs out on the counter top for quite sometime but I have two roosters so my question is a bit different.  I gather my eggs every day, sometimes every other. I don't always get to wash them all right away.  I always refrigerate after washing, but how long can I leave fertilized eggs out unwashed on counter and they still be safe to wash and refrigerate for eating?

I read an article in Backyard Chickens that said that it actually wasn't safer to leave any eggs out. That being said it shouldn't matter whether they are fertilized or not.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
