From mental illness to hard-boiled eggs. Nice subject change, right? But I’m so baffled by the fact that we boiled up a big batch of eggs from our hens this morning, and across the board Gloria’s were much more difficult to peel than Cleo’s. Why is this? They are consistently a darker brown color, and she is probably more of a Barred Rock than a Rhode Island Red. Does any of that make a difference? Cleo’s nicely peeled egg is on the top right, the other two messes are Gloria’s, which I used for egg salad… not pretty enough for deviled eggs.
