Hello, I have a blog about my suburban chicken experience (http://jensenschickens.blogspot.com/). A couple of my readers have expressed concern that I don't wash or refrigerate my fresh chicken eggs. I've read quite a few of the posts on this forum and decided not to remove the bloom, but does anyone know of a resource from a higher authority on this topic? Egg safety standards on the USDA website are geared towards commercially processed eggs. Thanks.
