I'm not too sure where this should actually go so I'll try here. I've had my small flock of NH Reds almost a year now and all is doing well. When I gather the eggs every day I bring them in and rinse them off in a utility sink under running water. My son works with a fellow that had a small commercial operation years ago and he says I should be washing them in some kind of anti bacterial solution. I don't sell my eggs, I just give them away to family and friends. So how about it, do I need more chemicals in my life?
