I guess this may sound stupid but I am wondering how long eggs stay good for? I know everything has a shelf life - what is the shelf life of our yummy fresh eggs?

In the fridge, several months. I'm not for sure, because mine get eaten, sold, or given away for favors!

On the counter, several weeks+.

I have heard 2-3 weeks un-refrigerated and 4-5 months is properly kept in a frig. For best results and longevity don't wash your eggs, it takes the bloom off, which protects the egg.

Moetrout I have never heard of that "bloom" I need to do some research on that.

leave the bloom on them, and if the carton is sealed in a zip lock in the fridge they will keep 6-7 months. mine never last that long though... lol
