I never wash eggs that look clean out of the nest. They go from nest right into the carton.
I Never wash, put them in a carton on the counter where they wait to be consumed
Nope, I have never washed an egg!
Got too many things to clean without washing clean eggs!!!!!
I only clean the dirty ones.
I never wash them.
And today there was an article on the NYT with a famous French chef, Jacques Pepin, making an omelette. Cool to watch the video. He said that instead of breaking the egg on the bowl's rim, to break it on the counter, so the shell doesn't break towards the inside of the egg, causing bacteria to get into it. That makes me believe he doesn't wash it either.
I don't wash my eggs. I came from Germany and in Europe they don't wash their eggs and they don't refrigerate them either.
I have also heard of the bloom that helps protect the eggs contents. I rarely wash an egg unless it is really dirty. Then I'll wash it, cook, & eat that one right away.
Clean eggs go into carton into fridge.
Hens who want to roost in nestboxes get shoo'd outta there if I catch 'em when I lock up henhouse at dusk. I don't need ca-ca in nestboxes
I don't wash them unless they have poop on them. I do refrigerate them but that is more because my wife is afraid not to. Working on that because I don't want to refrigerate.
