IMO,

if they are fertile, pasture raised eggs, keep them on the shelf room temp for up to 3 weeks.

If they are mass produced, irradiated, pasteurized store bought eggs(even best quality from WF...) id refrigerate them.

Only leave them out if they still have the natural bloom from the chicken. When laying an egg the hen automatically puts a protective coating that will allow the eggs to stay fertile out in most temperatures without spoiling until she collects enough to have a full clutch. Mass produced eggs are washed and then something ELSE is put on to replace the bloom (sometimes mineral oil for instance). All eggs from the store you want to put in the refrigerator. You can also put totally natural eggs in the fridge if you need them to last a very long time. With the bloom they will stay good for at least half a year. If you are going to eat natural bloom eggs raw within the month, don't wash them and don't refrigerate them. Refrigeration changes something in them and they don't taste nearly as good and there's no reason if they still have the bloom.

Hope that helps.

Oops, meant to say that will allow the eggs to stay FRESH and able to hatch.
Also, make sure you always wash bought eggs well because there's no way of knowing what might have been put on the shell as this does not have to be listed on the label. By the way, shells are porous so that's a big argument for producing your own eggs or buying eggs that still have the natural bloom from a farmer willing to do that rather than eggs that are cleaned and sealed with other substances.
