Please. Try steaming them. Just once.

I raise hens and use fresh eggs, still warm from the hen, all the time. I hard cooked half a dozen such eggs this morning. It works great.

You can use any cheap old vegetable steamer you have hanging around. Put it in a pot, fill with water to the bottom of the steamer. Add your eggs, warm, cold, whatever. Put the lid on. Turn on the heat. When you know it's steaming (I use a glass lid on my pot so I can see), reduce heat just enough so the steaming continues and set a timer for 13 minutes.

When the eggs are done cooking, plunge them into cold water and ice. This is not to loosen the shells. It simply stops the eggs from cooking and prevents that nasty blue sulfur ring they can get.

Peel. Easily. Every time.
