    Did you know that hens lay their eggs an hour later every day? Fascinating, really. Also, eggs should be left for a day or two before use.We sold some recently to be used for pickled eggs. The buyer boiled them straight away (they were laid that day) and he had difficulties peeling the shells away from the whites. Of the ones he didn't use, he retried them after a couple of days and they were absolutely fine. Not quite sure about the science behind this but I believe it to be true.
