Ok... So lets see if I've got this right.. 1.) Clean eggs can just be stored on the countertop in a basket. 2.) If egg is dirty ....A.) Wash the eggs with warm water ONLY - or ....B.) Lightly buff the dirt off with sand paper - or ....C.) Heavily soiled eggs should be discarded, or fed back to the flock. 3.) If 2 [A/B/C] the egg MUST be refrigerated as the bloom is removed, allowing bacteria in. Does this about run down the whole egg storage thing? Now, I'm not asking how long in the fridge they can stay. There's already a lengthy thread on that... Also a thread about how long on the countertop, which as I recall is around 2 weeks tops before refrigerated. So.. What I DO want to know is..... 1.) Do you keep them on the counter for any given time? 2.) Do you refrigerate them instead? Without washing. 3.) Do you obsess over each, washing them and then refrigerating them?
