How long can eggs sit out before they have to be refrigerated and what causes eggs to blood in them?

If you use your eggs within a month they probably don't need refrigeration. The blood spots on an egg are just a tiny bleed somewhere in the hen's reproductive tract - harmless.

As long as you don't wash them, they have a protective coating that prevents bacterial invasion. However most people do store them in the refrigerator.

Just think about it. People were eating & using eggs long before there were refrigerators.
Everything goes into refrigerators. Onions, potatoes, tomatoes, are some that should stay out of refrigeration. Ever see black spots in potatoes ? Stored to cold is the reason.

You're always advised not to refrigerate tomatoes. It causes them to start to break down. They're a tropical fruit, after all.
