    Have Lunch - egg sandwich![​IMG] Congratulations!

    Seriously, I usually collect eggs once a day. I bring them in and wipe/wash off any poo or foreign matter that may be on the shell. We usually leave the days eggs in a basket on the counter to use as needed. The next day when new eggs come in we put the older eggs in a crate in the fridge. They stay good for weeks.

    Fun, fun! enjoy! [​IMG]
