    Why did u do that to me? Read first page like a dummie, sounds like a political things. And there is 4 pages, read last, there was wrote about best keeping etc
    I need a answer in one sentence.
    Tell clients why my homestead eggs are better than market. + they're fresh, and fresh meant something..

    Sorry. There's a lot of information there. It says, unwashed, refrigerated, in a sealed container and they can last at least 3 months.

    In a nutshell, store eggs may be a month or two old. Fresh eggs taste best regardless of the source.

    I think store eggs have a sell by date. They also have a code with the Julian date which is the date they were packed.

    Your eggs are better because they come from foraging chickens that aren't kept in cages.

    If you dare, there's another Mother Earth News study on the nutritional difference between grass fed/foraging eggs and cage eggs.

    Research is better than soundbites.
