Not sure if this is the right forum or not...
So, today at work my co-worker realized she had a dozen store-bought eggs that had expired in March. She was tossing them but offered them to me, their reliable way to get rid of expired food. I remembered I'd recently read about how to test if an egg was bad. From this site: http://whatscookingamerica.net/Eggs/EggsFloat.htm
If the egg stay at the bottom - it is fresh.
If the egg is at an angle on the bottom - it is still fresh and good to eat.
If the egg stands on its pointed end at the bottom - it is still safe to eat but best used for baking and making hard-cooked eggs.
If the egg float - they're stale and best discarded.
As expected, it stood on its pointed end, indicating it was old but not rotten.
Then, on a whim, we pulled out some fresh, local, pastured eggs bought from another co-worker (in another department). They had been in the fridge for a week. Every single one of them floated! I cracked a couple. They smelled fine. The yolk was very dark, as a pastured egg should be. Both the yolk and the white were very thick and sticky. It seems OK?
So... just wondering what other people's homegrown, pastured eggs do in water? My chickens are only two months old so I can't test it yet.
