mouse manure on eggs

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

There was mouse manure, and probably urine, on shells of a carton of eggs left in the coop by mistake. I've washed the eggs off with dawn dish detergent and water. Does the mouse manure/urine permeate the shell and membrane? Are the eggs safe to eat?

Can't imagine anything good coming of this. I'd toss.


Imp-If in doubt throw it out.

Those shells are pourous, even with the protective bloom that is layed over the shell by the hen I would imagine that mouse urine is strong enough to disolve and penetrate that.
I would not chance that.

barniesickbyc I would toss them, and figure out how to place a few mouse traps to remove the threat!
no Offense to mice, I have raised many. But wild rodents carry Disease! and you can't be too careful where your food is concerned!

OK this thread just screamed "needs a mouse urine or mouse manure recipe" Something like a mouse poop custard. lol

I googled but couldn't find anything.

Imp-feels like a failure now.
