My question is after I collect eggs how do I store them and how long before they spoil
They are good out of the fridge for at least 2 months...but they will last longer in the fridge. If you need to wash them use only Luke warm water. For me I put them in the fridge and wash them before I use them if needed. I haven't had a dirt egg yet.
We leave ours on the counter. Good for 4 weeks or more
Our home is air-conditioned so I leave them on the counter for the day because I sell hatching eggs... Once the day is done and I have no orders I put them in the fridge... I rarely have to wash my eggs because I clean out nesting boxes each morning before they start laying... (I have a few die hards that refuse to roost instead preferring to roost in front of the nesting boxes) If an egg has a spot I gently wipe it off... The bloom is important to egg longevity, I have heard if that gets washed off eggs doesn't last as long..
If I were only collecting a few a day and only for my family Leaving them on the counter would be an option, but I gather upwards of 20+ eggs a day and sell hatching and eating eggs, my egg eating customers prefer them to be refrigerated.
