if you get fresh farm eggs and you don't wash them, you don't have to refrigerate them

You aren't supposed to refrigerate fresh eggs.

re: People That Do Not Refrigerate Eggs
Seriously, what do you think people did with their eggs before refrigerators were invented? You can safely keep an egg on the counter in your kitchen for a couple weeks, but once you put them in the fridge, you have to keep them in the fridge. It's actually more healthy for you to keep fresh eggs out of the fridge.

If it's a fresh egg you really don't need to refrigerate them. In a small henhouse environment, you can gather the eggs before they can become contaminated by prolonged contact to chicken shite.
A store bought egg has gone through some sort of cleaning process that removes a layer of the egg that prevents the growth of bacteria naturally. So if an egg has been washed, bacteria can seep in; so you have to refrigerate them.

North America is the only place that refrigerates eggs.

re: People That Do Not Refrigerate Eggs
Fact:

The United States is one of the only countries to refrigerate eggs. Mostly due to how the eggs are farmed and then rinsed of protective coatings.

In Europe no one refrigerates eggs.
Our production of eggs here is disgusting by their standards. So we have to refrigerate. BUT if you have farm fresh eggs, a simple rinse of water and then they are good two weeks unrefrigerated.

I could see how OP would be confused. His mom didn't refrigerate her eggs and look what a disaster that has been.

This.

Once they're refrigerated though, you can't store them any other way. We used to have a neighbor with a coop and she'd give us YUGE fresh eggs and we didn't refrigerate those.

What everyone is saying about it being okay with fresh farm eggs is true.

We get farm eggs sometimes from my mom who has a couple of laying hens, but we also buy eggs at the store. As a result, when my mom gives us some fresh eggs, we just throw them in the styrofoam egg case with the others in the fridge. It doesn't hurt them.

I have a lot of chickens and we never put the eggs in the fridge. It's also hard to keep up with the demand for our eggs

re: People That Do Not Refrigerate Eggs
So my question is, how long will the eggs last on the counter? I see "a couple of weeks", but is there a way to tell if they are bad?

We get farm fresh eggz from my FIL every once in a while, and I always just throw them in the fridge.
