    what I do is make a hole in the botton of the egg, the pointed end, I make that hole about the size of a pencil eraser or smaller [ i make mine smaller, but til you get the hang of it, you'll want the bigger holes] and then I make a pin hole at the other end and blow. Then I rise it out by putting water in it and shaking it up, I do that a couple of times. You want to try to get the skin out of the inside of the egg, when it starts to come out, I get hold of it and pull it out. Good luck...........

    My grandma used to do it. you take a sewing needle and poke a hole into both ends of the egg, then blow out the egg. I think she used to use the needle to break the yolk first. gotta be a trial and error type of thing.
