Using my thumb and first two fingers, I gave the eggs a twirl. The eggs that are hardboiled spun quite easily. The ones that were not hardboiled were harder to get to spin. They just did not really want to. With the exception of one of my silkies eggs that was quite pointed, it spun quickly and was not boiled, guess the point and size kept the yolk from moving!!
Quote:For plucker fingers, click on the "Meat Birds Etc" topic area (from the main index). Now you should see a listing of all the current threads about meat birds. Look in the upper righthand corner of that list -- there is a button that says "post new topic" or something to that effect. Do that
jvls1942, Near the top of the screen in the blue bar, click index, then click on the category you want to post a new topic in. You will see 'post new topic' in the same place as you usually see 'post reply'
Couldn't you candle it like you do when looking at a fertile egg? The raw egg should let more light in, while the boiled egg shouldn't & it should look dark cuz it's cooked. I don't have any boiled eggs or I'd try to see.
Boiled eggs don't last long around here.
I always use a pencil & mark a "B" on the end of any boiled eggs before I put them in the frig, that way I can even combine boiled & raw eggs in the same egg carton if needed & anyone can tell the difference by looking at the eggs. (something my Mom used to do).
We have always decorated the hard boiled eggs as soon as they cool and are dry so we know which are which. When I first got married my husband complained that he went to fry an egg and it was hard boiled. I asked if he did not see that it had a face on it. He just gave me that look. Now he draws faces on the hard boiled eggs.
