I have looked and looked on line and everyone says 'not' to soak you eggs in water to clean them. But I can't find a reason why. I have searched the web. Any specialists? I soak mine in cool water with a light natural fruit and veggie wash because my ducks make a mud mess and the hens always like to put their feet in it. So I get muddy poo in my aggs.. and I have one hen that seems to dive bomb the favorite nesting box -_- so annoying. I soak them so that they will clean off, but its now very long, plus the winter is the worst. I have had no problem with my eggs at all. I did, however, forget a batch in the water for a long time. So what I want to know is why not to soak eggs? And I really don't want to throw out 3 dozen Organic eggs.
