floating hard boiled eggs???

d2u | Nov 2, 2004 08:26 AM

I boiled a dozen eggs this morning. They were all from the same carton, and were not purchased that long ago. When I put them in the cold water, one of them floated. I have never had that happen before, and seem to remember that that means it is old or bad, so I tossed it. After boiling them, I found three more floating. They also were cracked with egg seeping out of them. What is going on with these eggs? I took out the floating eggs, but are they bad too? I have made a lot of boiled eggs in my life and have never had this happen, what is most likely wrong with them? Thanks...Dawn
