How long to hard boil small eggs?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Our chickens have only been laying for a couple of weeks and their eggs are still kind of small.  I have only made hard boiled eggs with large, store bought eggs before.  Does anyone know how long small eggs should be cooked for?  I usually do the cold water method where you place the eggs in cold water and bring to a boil, then remove from heat and let them sit in the water until cooked, usually like 15 minutes.  Will the egg size make enough of a difference to overcook them?

with my smaller eggs, I generally bring them to a hard boil for 5 minutes. Then I take them off the heat and let them sit for 5 more before adding ice to the pot.
