We have been anticipating our first eggs from our first chickens and were super excited to get our first 2 eggs this week! I had the nesting boxes closed off so they did not learn to poop in them before they were laying, so the first 2 eggs were laid in the floor of the coop. I am a bit of a germ freak and am having a hard time eating them. I know that there are varying opinions about washing eggs and after reading up on the topic had decided to rinse them off right before cooking, but I now feel like I should wash them first. Any thoughts? Will cooking them kill any bacteria? Thanks! PS - I have opened the nesting boxes and have some golf balls in them. The hens are quite curious!
