    Well, this is sort of a funny situation I find myself in now. I originally got the chickens for the eggs but am now vegan! I'm not sure exactly what to do with my current eggs and future eggs until I am able to find a new owner for the chickens and coop. Thought this would be a good discussion for future vegan chicken owners as well tho.

    Sell them... or see if you can donate them to a local pantry or shelter...

    I mean sometimes the eggs would be a little dirty and I would only clean them right before eating/cooking with them. I heard when you clean them they lose their natural coating that helps preserve them out of the fridge. I wondering if I clean them or not?

    Unless you can keep them refrigerated 100% of the time, don't wash. Let your customers know that the eggs are not washed or treated in any way.

    Feed the dirty ones back to the hens... either scrambled and give them the shells too, or hard boiled mashed up with shell still on...
