|Buff Orpingtons Chickens - they lay brown eggs. The guy|
with the red comb and waddle was the meanest chicken in the
county but, someone ate him last summer. We heard he was tastey.
I have a solution for peeling fresh eggs! I read this somewhere a long time ago - probably Martha Stewart - and it actually works. After you cover the eggs in the pot with cold water, put salt in the water. Not a teaspoon or tablespoon - I mean lots of salt. When I do a dozen eggs (My boys love hard boiled eggs - they eat them like apples) I use a 1/4 cup of salt. The salt taste does not come through the shell. But those eggs just pop out of the shells.
I don't think there is anything dangerous about doing this but try at your own risk. Enjoy!
