When you get a package of eggs, open the package (if you can - some are sealed), and put your thumb on one egg, your forand one finger on the egg on the other side. Jiggle your fingers - if the eggs stick and don't move, it's a sure sign that one or both are broken. If they move freely, they are good.

To check if your eggs are good to eat, fill a bowl with water and put your egg(s) in it. If the egg sinks to the bottom and lays on its side, it's quite fresh. If it stands on its end on the bottom, they are still good but older, perhaps a few weeks old. If they float, there are gases that have built up in the shell, and the eggs may be too old to eat - you may feel sick after eating them.
