In response to HAWKTHREE: There is a coating on eggs when they are first laid that prevents many bacteria and some viruses from being able to enter the egg. This is why bird eggs don't usually go bad during the hatching process. When you pasteurize eggs (which is what they do in the US) you remove that coating so your eggs are more susceptible to going bad. In many other countries the eggs are unpasteurized and must be washed right before use.
And my favorite brands (when I don't get fresh eggs from my mom's friend who raises chickens) are Happy Egg Company and Vital Farms Pasture Raised. I like my eggs to have a boost of nutrients from the chickens being allowed to graze and eat lots of bugs to have a more varied diet.
The first time I spent a lot of time in England (grandkids are British) I was pretty surprised to see eggs were not refrigerated. I was sure my daughter had left them out on the counter too long and they had gone bad -- but they're sold unrefrigerated as well.
We wash ours in the US and that somehow causes the US to have to refrigerate.

We've been buying organic, cage free eggs for a while now. This week I bought a brand called Nellie's because it was on sale- for the first time, I can actually taste a difference between regular eggs and these. What's your favorite egg brand?
