    Ok now I'm even more excited. My second chicken layed her first egg today. So now I have two tinny eggs. They don't look dirty; but what is the best way to wash them. Do I put them in the fridge. after I wash them ? So excited !!!!

    If they are soiled with feces you can just rinse them under a stream of water. Keep in mind washing eggs actually allows bacteria easier access to the inside of the egg. I only wash if they are soiled. Good luck to you!
