To keep eggs at their freshest, collect them several times a day and refrigerate them immediately. Also keep the nestingboxes clean by changing the nesting material often. Eggs can be kept safely for 2-3 weeks in the frig. Never use an egg that has a broken or cracked shell. Avoid washing eggs because it will remove the protective outer layer. This layer helps slow moisture loss and keeps bacteria from entering the egg.
