I suspect my eggs may be too fresh, seeing as how they are straight from the coop and only a few days old. I've tried removing from heat and steaming, adding salt to the water and my eggs are still always hard to peel and some of the egg comes off with the shell. Not bad for salads, but I want to make a tray of deviled eggs for a party tomorrow and I am panicked the eggs will not be exactly right.

let them sit before the ice bath - I'll try it thanks :) I was told to put them immediately in the cold bath to "shock" them away from the shell, but it didn't work. I'll let them rest then shock them.
I've done an ice bath but not more ice than water, I will give that a whirl. I do suspect it is because our eggs are fresh. I hate to buy some when I have them, but I may just do that.
