You are actually doing more harm than good if you wash clean freshly laid eggs. Nature's protection, we call the "bloom" , is water soluble. So washing removes it. The shell is porous, so it then can absorb odors and tastes. But if an egg has gotten moist from something, say "poo"....then the bloom has been compromised anyway. If the egg is freshly laid, wash and use immediately. If it has set awhile dispose of it. So to answer your question......no and yes!
