Tips From Our Junior Blogger: The Egg Float Test

Chicken tending tips straight from the mouth of a 5-year-old!

The Egg Float Test

To see if your eggs are icky put them in water. There are teeny tiny holes on the egg shell that let air inside the egg. If your egg is really old that means lots and lots of air has been sent inside and this makes it float in water. 

  • If the egg is floating on the top of the water then that means there is lots of air that got inside.  The egg should be thrown away because that means it is really old and icky. 

  • If the egg is floating in the middle of the water that means you should cook it and eat it right away.

  • If the egg is on the bottom that means it's good to eat and you don't have to eat it right away like the egg that was floating in the middle.
