Some good things to know:

How to tell if your egg is fresh.  Pop it into a glass of water and observe.

If it sinks but then floats at an angle, it’s about a week old.

If it floats, bin it. Bad egg

float

Additional information:

How do you see if an egg is hard cooked? Spin it on a flat surface. If the egg wobbles, it’s fresh because the insides are moving around. If the egg spins smoothly, it’s cooked.
