Some folks that are new to chicken keeping often have questions about, should you wash eggs and how to store them. Then the next question is for how long can I store them. I have seen all sorts of articles about all sorts of ways to store eggs, from oiling them to just leaving them sit on the counter there are many answers.
Having a lot of answers though seems to defeat the purpose of asking because when these new to having fresh eggs folks get multiple answers they end up more confused than when they started. So today we will see what The Farmer’s Lamp with generations of chicken experience to help us get an answer. I know there are people who buy eggs from a grocery store and they always have the sell by date on them.
I know some folks that will throw them away the day after the sell by date. I always think what a waste. I have had eggs in my fridge even 2 months after the sell by date that were perfectly fine. This article says they can stay good for up to 100 days in the fridge at the right temps. The article also covers whether you need or should wash your eggs. Then explains why you may not even need to refrigerate your fresh eggs. So for folks that wonder is you should wash eggs and how to store them this may answer your questions.
