  • I have chickens, so my secret to peeling FRESH eggs need a regular sized spoon. Tap the spoon on the end of the egg (find where the air is) peel back some just enough shell to slide spoon in between the egg and shell. Turn the spoon around. Its magic. The shell will come right off! - by TOMNTRISH1
  • Older eggs are better for hard-boiling. The shells should come off of them easily. - by NCIS-FAN
