There are few rules for picking out a fresh egg from the old ones.
A fresh egg has a thick and almost rugged shell. If you look through the fresh egg on the light, you will be able to see its yolk. This is the exact principle of Ovoscope machine as it reports on the egg freshness exactly the same way.
If the egg sinks down in the water, it means it’s fresh, but if floats up on the surface then it’s definitely old.
If you feel that the yolk is moving when shaking the egg, then it’s better to throw right away.
Hard-boiled fresh egg peels harder than the old one. New egg is heavier than the older.
Place the egg on a table and swirl it. A new egg will not swirl, only the old one will.
