    Curiosity question. This is probably the wrong place but seems the closest. When storing eggs, fertile or not (I'm the only roo allowed by law ) in an egg carton is it best pointed side down or up?? [​IMG] or doesn't it matter?

    The only time it is important is if the eggs are fertile and you intend to hatch them. If you are storing for eating, it doesn't matter. [​IMG]
