    I agree that old eggs peel better. Buy your eggs a week before the party and they will peel just fine.

    You can add a little vinegar to your water when you are boiling your eggs and that can help.

    I raise chickens for the eggs and sell them. If you will bring to a boil, cover and let set for 20 minutes. Rinse in cold water. The egg will continue to cook until it is in cold water. Lightly crack and get a bit of the shell started to come off. Use a small teaspoon and slip up under the shell and work your way around the whole egg. It will come off beautifully.

    I seem to have heard you add just a little wh.vinagar to the water you boil them in? try with one egg and see if it works. 8-)

    Looks like we know our eggs! I buy farm eggs (well did till last week when my co-worker retired,man am I going to muss the fresh eggs) Anyway even she buys eggs from the store if she wants to make anything that required boiling and peeling the egg. Fresh eggs no matter what you do will be very difficult to peel.

    I usually tap the boiled egg on a board to crack the shell and then lightly roll between the board and your palm until the whole shell is shattered, the shell usually comes right off. Don't know if it will work with really fresh eggs but if the other suggestions don't work it might be worth a try.

    It is much easier to peel older eggs. If they are real fresh they are very hard to peel.

    How much salt did you use in the water, when using fresh eggs which I have because we have chickens, I use 1/4 of cup of salt for 6 to 12 eggs and I have not had that problem.
