I have read about not washing or refrigerating your fresh eggs, but I'm in a bind. We have over 6 doz on hand and more every day- and I need to make sure they are staying good until we can hand them out or use them. I recently read an article about washing then dipping them in (lard) to preserve them a little longer. Does anyone have experience in this or suggestions? It's mainly a fix until this spring when the farmers markets open near by and we can get them in a new run where we can maintain the mud.
