Freeze in sandwich size bags. Lay them flat in the freezer and they take up little room.

I personally would not bother freezing eggs for long term storage. Even if they come out intact after few days of freezing, the same cannot be said after long term storage.
Here's a chart created by foodsafety.gov. http://www.foodsafety.gov/keep/charts/eggstorage.html
I'm not sure where the recommended 3-5 wks storage for raw eggs comes from, as I've stored mine in freezer for months and they stayed fresh, which is fine over winter period while the girls are not laying as much. When I have excess eggs, I give em to my neighbors.
Handy tip for boiling and peeling eggs. FRESH eggs do not peel well PERIOD. Leave them on the counter for a couple three days then boil with a little vinegar (in case an egg cracks) I start with cold water bring to boil and cook for 5 minutes Turn off heat and leave until you can put your hand in the water it also helps to peel eggs under running water.
PS I have gas stove
Here's my two cents on the best way to freeze eggs: Get freezer jars (usually made of plastic) in your favorite store's canning/preserving section. Crack as many eggs as will fit, use a hand blender to make them scrambled, screw on the lid, and store in the freezer. The jars are designed to be tolerant of expansion, and don't become brittle like most other generic/cheap plastic containers. The eggs last a long time when kept frozen, with none of the usual concerns (bacteria contamination from shells, change of texture/consistency, etc).

I first read about doing this 2 years ago, and always steam my eggs now. I steam for 20 minutes, but have never adjusted the time for the number of eggs. I'll have to try that.
Steaming makes peeling fresh eggs so much easier, and I find the white to be less rubbery.and the yolk more flavorful. It's worth the extra effort.
