How to check if the eggs are fresh?

If the egg is fresh, its shell will be rough. Add salt in a glass of water and put the egg in it. If the egg floats on the water, you can be sure that it is a decayed one. If the egg white oozes out like water, the egg must be rotten. The egg white of the rotten egg will be intermixed with the egg yolk.
