This morning I went to open my girls door and check their food. Out of the corner of my eye I see something in the nesting box - and there it was the first egg! They are all over 20 weeks so I was starting to wonder if it would ever happen! We'll be eating this egg this morning but I'm wondering now about longer term storage (If we ever get that many eggs). I've read some people say to clean the eggs before putting them in the carton, others say not to wash until you eat it. This egg was amazingly clean (you can see, I haven't done anything to it yet). Are there any "best practices" of egg collecting and storage people have to share? Thanks!
