    After boiling my eggs I notice much of the white is sticking to the shell, could this be a feed issue?

    That's the problem with fresh eggs. Let them sit around for awhile, they'll be like store bought eggs and peel better.

    I thought that meant they didn't cook long enough....

    Fresh eggs are hard to peel. You can leave them sit on the counter for a couple days then boil them.

    Also some one on here had a way of boiling them so that the whites do not stick. Try to search it.

    Quote:Can I leave them on the counter even if I have a rooster, will that cause blood spots on the yolks?

    Having a roo has nothing to do with the blood spots they are cause by a blood vesel breaking in the laying process.
    I have roos with my ladies and as long as it is not 90 degrees out they should be just fine.
