Okay, no shortage of questions from newbs here, on whether eggs need refrigeration. Of course they don't, if kept unwashed at room temperature... yadda, yadda. But here's a question I have not seen answered here: is there any down side to refrigerating your eggs? Now, I'm not talking about the folks with large flocks, collecting enough eggs to actually put a dent in your refrigerator space. I'm talking about those with small flocks, collecting just enough eggs to feed their family, where filling up the refrigerator with dozens of dozens of eggs is not a factor. Why would you NOT refrigerate, other than, "we get along just fine without"?
