So... today I got my first egg! Had to share that. This brought up a few questions, because I have 12 hens and a few friends who are wanting to buy some eggs from me once I start getting too many for my family. 1. Do you put a date (like lay/collected date) on the carton? 2. Do you tell them to store them counter top instead of in the fridge? (I have heard that this is the preferred method of storing fresh, un-washed eggs) 3. Do you tell them that they are not washed (for longer freshness) and that they should wash them before use? 4. Are your eggs fertile (do you have a roo in with your hens)? And if so, is there anything different about the eggs or anything/reason to tell the buyers? Typically store bought eggs (even free range) are not fertilized, is this correct? Hmmm... I feel like there was more. I guess I'll have to add later if I think of anything else! Thanks for your input!
