I had a landlord once that worked for an egg packer/distributor. She would come around every month to collect the rent, and she brought me ..eggs.. eggs.. and more eggs.

She told me the same thing.. DON'T refrigerate them. Keep them in a cool place, but fridge cold will actually accelerate their decay.

I found this to be quite true. They lasted for 2-3 weeks in so cal inside a cupboard.

Yep, and the thing is to keep oxygen from penetrating the shell. That spoils them. So one way, as I mentioned is just to turn them over every few days - that way the egg inside coats the shell. I like that way because it's simple and not messy.

Other ways include putting vaseline on the outside of the shell, or water glass. Or boiling them just a wee bit to cook a thin film on the inside; but they all accomplish the same thing.

It's amazing what doesn't require refrigeration. But with produce (and eggs), once they've been refrigerated they tend to spoil a lot quicker without it.
