So, my hens sometimes lay dirty eggs, and when my youngsters start laying, I am going to sell the eggs, so they need to be clean. I heard somewhere, however, that when eggs are washed, the egg soaks up the moisture and ruins the shell/outer layer of the egg? I've never tried washing eggs besides right before eating them, so I've never had the problem, but I need to know if this is true. So the question is, is it alright for an egg to be washed with just water then not eaten for several days? Thanks!
