    They're just about 4 weeks old, and not a single egg yet.
    Should I just crockpot them now, or wait awhile?

    Maybe if you hug them more, it would hurry things up.

    I think they're a little small for the crock pot unless you throw them all in at once. They look more like nuggets to me.

    I tried cracking one open with no luck.
    I might have to hard boil.

    Is there a way to make them easier to peel?

    Lots of salt and make sure to roll them between your palms to make the outside separate from the insides.[​IMG]

    I've heard vinegar in the water helps, too.
