Do they float if they have gone off, or sink? I can't remember!!

They should sink if fresh. They will start to tilt upwards in the water as they age - if they float, bin them.

Bad eggs float, because of all the nasty gases inside.

But don't test them until you are ready to use them as immersing them in water will affect their shelflife (so to speak)

Fantastic - thank you all so much! I can now stop chucking eggs out after a small but strange ritual of putting them in water, not being able to remember what the crack (ahem) was and binning them anyway
