    Boil the eggs and then put them in ice water. Going from hot to cold makes the egg pull away from the shell. Easy Peasy and perfect!

    Fresh eggs won't shell at all, I won't even bother shelling fresh eggs. I keep dozens of eggs in my spare fridge so fresh eggs isn't an issue for me. LOL. Egss will last for months in a cold fridge no more then 34. The older the eggs, the shell will practically slip off. I shell eggs under running water and never have a problem, the shells come off usually in two halves. To prevent the green color around the yolk, the faster boiled eggs are cooled the less chance of the green color pooling around the yolk. I put the eggs fresh out of the pot into cold water. To keep the eggs from cracking, put a pin hole through the shell at one end.

    I use to work in quality control for a poultry industry to pay for my college classes. Ask me anything about a chicken and the egg! I still inspect a whole chicken before I cook it. LOL

    I just did over 4 dozen FRESH eggs (we have hens)for deviled eggs for seder and Maundy Thursday church meals---
    Put 1/4 c. salt in the water you boil them in. Drain the hot water off, put COLD water on, then change the water at least once more. Crack and peel right away while they are still warm.--I use a spoon, too!
