After a year, still the same...beyond the year, we fed them to the chickens, they preferred their's one way we tried.

Have a friend in Ireland who says she, her mother and grandmother never fridged their eggs at all, just stored them in a cool dark place unwashed. Kept for months.

I've ben told by more than one country neighbor up at the BOL that they have kept eggs for up to 9 months in a closet w/ and w/o cleaning, BUT if you clean you must use mineral oil to seal the shell as it IS porous-like a balloon that leaks air through the larger rubber/plastic molecules...
