Good Eatin': American Egg Board (recipes)

"A hen requires 24 to 26 hours to produce an egg. Thirty minutes later, she starts all over again....The egg shell may have as many as 17,000 tiny pores over its surface. Through them, the egg can absorb flavors and odors. Storing them in their cartons helps keep them fresh....Eggs age more in one day at room temperature than in one week in the refrigerator....About 240 million laying hens produce approximately 5.5 billion dozen eggs per year in the United States....White shelled eggs are produced by hens with white feathers and ear lobes. Brown shelled eggs are produced by hens with red feathers and red ear lobes....To tell if an egg is raw or hard-cooked, spin it! If the egg spins easily, it is hard-cooked but if it wobbles, it is raw." - from the website. <>
