Bleaching eggs?

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by Tikkijane, Nov 20, 2011.

  1. Sooooo. Apparently, my in-laws refuse to eat our eggs because we don't bleach them. Indeed. Apparently, because chickens touch them with their "butts," the eggs need to be bleach washed before they are sanitary and safe to eat. After all, the aunt does this, and she used to have a commercial chicken farm....

    If anyone has links, please share them!

    Thanks,
    Tikki

    I wouldn't even go there. Don't give eggs to your in-laws, don't discuss it. I don't see you changing their minds, personally. Best of luck, though.

    If people start stupid, it will not be worth your time to educate them.

    Sorry to say but let them eat commercial food and die young.

    Heck, every time I ask someone if they would like some eggs, they jump at the chance. All I tell them is, my eggs are not washed & they go right from the hen to the fridge. Everyone is thrilled to get fresh eggs, and not those nasty store bought sad eggs. I love my happy eggs, and now I am getting Green Happy Eggs! [​IMG] I hope next week that I may get some Blue Happy Eggs. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
