Egg shells are porous, with a micro membrane coating on them called “bloom” to keep potential baby chicks and their environment safe and clean. Bacteria has a hard time getting inside a dry egg. Washing dirty eggs removes the bloom and invites bacteria to be drawn inside the egg. And washing eggs in cool water actually creates a vacuum, pulling unwanted bacteria inside even faster.

As a chick embryo develops in a fertilized egg, the yolk provides nourishment and the albumen cushions the embryo.
