Start off by getting you pan of water to a rolling boil. While you are heating the water going get a pan of ice water going. Add lots of ice then fill with water. when you get both boiling and ice water ready it is a good time to check your thermometers for accuracy.
Now that you have your water boiling use a slotted spoon to gently add the eggs. You want to boil them for a full 15 minutes regardless of size. Then gentle move them to the ice water bath for a full 20 minutes. Tap the eggs on the counter and peel. A lot of the time the eggs will almost fall out of the shell after you get it half way.
One of my hens is a double yoke girl most of the time and huge eggs. She is also my smallest hen.
chickens let out to play and eat some bugs.
