Store Fresh Eggs Without Refrigeration

Frankly, fresh eggs that have never been refrigerated are much better tasting, and any eggs can be stored outside the fridge for more than 6 months. I have firsthand knowledge. I learned this in Fairbanks, Alaska, where we got our last delivery of eggs about October 15th in the 60s, and our next delivery would be in mid-March. We bought a box of eggs and they had not been refrigerated. I put mine in the bottom of a cool dark closet, and once per week I took them all out and turned each egg over individually and then put them back. I never lost an egg. They were not fertilized. I have done the same here in Canada, as I had to go very far to get unrefrigerated eggs, so only went once per month.

I do not know how well this would work with a fertilized egg, but it would not likely develop a chick. Hope not. I do not think it would be pleasant for most. I was honored once in Beijing with an expensive unborn chicken for each person at the dinner table. I did not know until I bit into it, thank goodness. I was able to smile and choke it down and did not suffer from nausea. I will never eat another. ARRGGHH!
