Do you eat your really dirty eggs?

    I missed a day of collecting eggs so yesterday I collected the 2 days worth. Of course all 11 eggs were in one out of the 6 nest boxes, and they were extra dirty. One of the eggs broke over these eggs, leaving them all covered in dried yoke and whites. I wasn't sure what to do, but that's a big waste so for now I have them in a carton in my fridge that I have written on to say, "dirty eggs. Cook extra thoroughly."
    What would you do? Toss all the eggs, wash them, or leave them and cook them extra thoroughly?
    I haven't eaten any yet, stop me if I shouldn't! [​IMG]

    I would wash them maybe warm water with a SMALL dash of Clorox in the water. Just dunk 'em in there and wipe them off, and dry them. Then try to use them up the next time you use eggs. That's what I do and it seems to work fine
