Hello all! I have tried googling how to tell if an egg is bad or good, most results come up with the water test....if the egg is bad it will float, sinkers are good. How well does this method work? What should I look for if an egg is bad when I Crack it open? Sometimes we get an egg that has a small black dot on the yolk and I'm not sure what it is or if it's safe to consume. Our eggs stay fairly fresh, we eat most of them and I scramble the older eggs to feed to our flock when we aquire an abundance.
