Hello, Im new to Backyard Chickens! I just bought a familys chicken set up (they had to move) and I have some questions. Total I have 11 laying hens, 3 roosters, then 20 chick hens and 1 chick rooster (35 total : ) I find myself getting lost in whether its best to wash the eggs in warm water, then refrigerate. ON THE OTHER HAND, to not wash them (thus leaving the bloom on), and allowing them to sit out for up to 6 weeks, (is what Ive read in some of the forums). WHAT do YOU do?
