I have been eyeballing this Egg Skelter for some time. I don't put our chickens eggs in the fridge. We eat them often and if they are not washed, the bloom on the outside of the eggs will keep them fresh for up to 12 weeks un-refrigerated We have never gone that long, as we eat our eggs almost every morning for breakfast. What this handy dandy toy does, is keep the eggs in order freshness with the older eggs at the bottom and the newer eggs at the top. If you keep backyard chickens, this is a great thing to have!!
