you refrigerate your eggs from the store or from your own chicken coop?

no fresh eggs out of hens nest can be left on the counter. Once the eggs are washed my understanding is the the cuticle is gone that protects them from bacteria at the shell layer.

If the eggs are unwashed the refrigeration is not required.

So eggs from the grocery or costco have already been washed so we need to refrigerate them.
I sahould have known that since I'm a farmboy and my grandpa raised chickens. Thanks

Costco was $7 for 24 so not bad. Worth it for me to drive there for milk, eggs, gas and a shicken
Gonna have to take a drive to Costco. $6 a dozen here.
I used to eat 6 eggs a day but had to cut back . Fucking crazy.

From what I heard. A bird flu wiped out a large portion of the population. (I read that as Bill Gates had them poisoned to show us we need fake food)

They said it should recover in about 4 to 6 months.

I do believe I will get a few chickens this year. I’ve just started making butter and will be looking for other ways to not rely on the market.
Adding raised beds near the house to grow our veggies. I haven’t last 3 years as I’m back out on the road. But now I see we need to.

Exactly

Fresh eggs can be left out for a very long time and still be fine. When I still had around 20 laying hens, some of the eggs that were laid in October/November I was eating in March/April, as I couldn't keep up eating them Spring through Fall. Since they didn't lay in the winter I was able to catch up about the time the started laying again.

I just bought 18 a half week ago and they were around $4 at Walmart. I didn't see the price but a dozen were just under $3.

It may be coming around though. I'll know in a few days.
Its gone way up over the last 3 weeks. Yeah I can remember about 6 months ago you could get 18 at WallyWorld for like 1.50.
Now 18 is 11 dollars last I checked.
