    I never have any dirty eggs, unless it has rained alot. WOW. I am still shocked over this news!! I can't wait to tell my MIL. She won't even eat my eggs when they've been scrubbed. She says she doesn't eat eggs from a chicken.............WHAAAA?
    She says she gets them at Wal-mart.

    I hope that gene skipped my kids.......[​IMG]

    BTW, Cynthia.......I can't believe you have the nerve to eat your eggs!!! Your chickens have the most beautiful offspring.

    I WANT ONE!!!! [​IMG] A big speckled ROO. [​IMG]

    Kinda off topic but kinda not....I am a Alton Brown/Good Eats/ Food Network fan and he said that one mistake that most people are prone to is do break an egg on the side of the pan/bowl and the force of the "V" type hit can send pieces of shell into the egg. He says that chefs tend to hit eggs agains a flat survace to avoid this....I think the same show was when he also said that chefs only "deal" with egg @ room temp - never straight out of fridge...

    Don't wash unless there's poo on the eggs. Then I just scrub the spots with a damp paper towel.

    Works fine for us...

    Sale eggs I wash in "Egg Wash" solution but personal eggs I don't bother washing. Been eating them unwashed for years and have not gotten sick yet!![​IMG]

    I use a damp paper towel to spot clean any stuck poo, if I felt they needed washing, I would do it right before cooking...
