    Do eggs need to be refridged or can you leave them out in a bowl at room temp?

    If you wash them, they need to be in the fridge, if not washed, you can leave them on the counter til you are ready to use them(wash before use, of course [​IMG]).

    A lot of folks on here leave theirs on the counter. I do both. Beings I sell the "perfect" ones I refrigerate those. When the weather is under 80 degrees I leave our "eating" eggs in a bowl on the counter. If it is over 80 the "eating" eggs go in a special carton in the fridge.
