My first egg was Christmas morning, and most days since I have found an egg; Friday I got two. I was excited to get them ( and still am), but it was always ME who found them. I was feeling rather bad that DH hadn't found one himself, as he's the one who has done the most work on the coop. Well, this morning when he went out to open up, there was an egg for him. He told me about it when I got up later. I asked him if he'd weighed it (I'm keeping track to see how they grow as laying progresses) but he said he hadn't,just that he'd washed it! I asked him why, and he said it had poo on it. I explained that I don't wash the eggs, just brush off any dirty stuff, weigh it, then put the date on it, then told him to eat the egg as it wouldn't keep as long as the others. He enjoyed the egg, but now I'm wondering if I over-reacted. How long would it have kept after it had been washed (assuming he washed it correctly)?
