    Hey Guys, I found some threads below which gave really great info. So my problem is solved. [​IMG]

    I've got a great pickled eggs recipe but I'm having trouble figuring out how old the eggs must be to hard boil them and have the shells come off easily. I've waited up to two weeks and that doesn't seem to do it. They still stick to the shell.

    I notice with store bought eggs the shells always come right off.

    Thanks!

    For quail eggs I usually refrigerate them for at least 2 weeks. Chicken eggs don't need to be that old, maybe 1 week.
