I wash all my DUCK eggs... Chicken eggs I don't unless I am selling them
I dont wash either until just before I use them or give them to someone else. Unless they got poopy on. Then I wash right away
ALL my duck eggs are always really dirty... I have 12 ducks and 2 geese in the same house, so that prolly contributes to it
I get about 50% clean each time
Wow I completely agree. Doesn't matter how hard I try it's like they take them outside find the closest mud puddle and play matchbox monster truck rally with the dam things before putting them in nest lol
You two are funny. At least I know my ducks aren't doing all that to just me.
Yep and inside too.
In my limited experience, the yolk thickness is really dependent on the freshness. We use raw eggs in our homemade ice-cream and we have to use eggs at least a week old or older. Otherwise the fresher eggs hold together more and make yellow streaks.
I rinse/wash mine with luke warm water and a gentle rag just to get the poop and dirt off (trying to leave the bloom). I also refrigerate them, mainly because I have teeny counters. I do share many and they are more appealing this way. Although, I do educate those I give eggs to, to get in the habit of washing eggs before use, just as one would with any other fresh produce. Seeing that salmonella primarily resides on the shell, it is just a matter of trying to bring food quality control back into the hands of the consumer.
