After boiling a pot of eggs, I noticed that one of them floated. Is a boiled egg that floats in water bad, as is a uncooked egg that floats in water is bad?
The best way to test your floating egg is to peel it open and see if it's still good. Others with floating boiled eggs found that the air pocket seemed to be a bit bigger than the non-floating eggs, but that their floating eggs still smelled and tasted fine.
It's possible, that the floating eggs are just less "fresh" than the non-floating ones . . . thus the bigger air pocket, but not rotten.
Hope this helps,
