Title'Of Eggs by Dr Goddard'
DescriptionObservations of fresh and stale eggs and the differences in boiling them
'The paler or deeper colour of the yolk is no sign of the newness or staleness of the eg; it is commonly (and very probably) asserted, that the difference is from the Age of the hen; that is that the younger Hen lays a paler yolk; and the olden the deeper coloured.'
