Hi, I have been raising chickens (silkies) for at least 10 years and have had added lovely free range, organic eggs to my diet. The other day I offered a dozen of these eggs to a new neighbor who asked if I had washed them. Well, yes I had. I said, the eggs was washed under cool running water and brushed with a vegetable brush. Then they go into a box and into the frig. But I had the definite impression that the neighbor imagined a complicated machine in the back of our barn that scrubbed and sterilized egg shells. So how ignorant am I? How do you all clean your eggs for storage or do you clean them at all? How about reusing egg boxes? Any problems there? What do you think?
