    Not sure if this is the right place to put this, but wanted some advice on how to prep eggs for our first "customers"- we essentially have a new informal arrangement with neighbors to sell them a dozen eggs a week. For our own eggs, we don't clean/wash, and just store in a carton in the fridge. Do people who sell do anything different to clean/prep? Or do you just tell your customers they might consider washing before eating? Anything else I should think.

    If they are dirty like on rainy days I wash them, if they're clean I don't wash the bloom off. If I have to wash them I refrigerate them If they're already clean I just leave them at room temperature. They don't last long enough to worry about whether we sell them or eat them.
