    Oops!! I put a few of the eggs I had hard-boiled into the same basket as my fresh eggs!! I vaguely remember reading in one of the chicken books I've read about how to determine which is which. Perhaps in one of Carla Emery's books? Anybody have any ideas or tricks? I'd hate to systematically crack them all just to find out!

    Lay an egg on the table, or counter, and spin it. If it's fresh, it will be slow and wobbly...if it's hard-boiled, it will spin fast.

    Good luck!
