Reusable Egg Carton Containers

Reusable egg carton containers are good if you have your own chickens or if you buy from the farmer’s market and just need a cute way to store them.

If you are like us and want to provide as much food as you possibly can from your own homestead, you will want to raise your own chicks. Once you have your flock of backyard chickens to the point of laying eggs, you can start thinking about how you are going to store your eggs.

How will you store your eggs?

The type of reusable egg carton containers will basically come down to how you want to store your eggs. Do you want to wash them and store them in a refrigerator container or do you want to leave them unwashed and sitting out on your counter?

  • unwashed eggs can be left out safely if you are using them up quickly
  • washed eggs must be stored in the refrigerator immediately

Washing your farm fresh eggs removes the bloom that your hens naturally apply to keep the germs from entering the shell. For this reason, you must wash in water that is warmer than the temperature of the egg so as to not draw in any germs into the inside of the egg. Once the bloom is removed by washing, the eggs need to be stored in the refrigerator.
