have you learned any tips/tricks that really help for peeling fresh eggs? i was told once it helpes to hit them with a spoon to crack the shell before boiling --- but i am not so sure that works so well --- i seem to always loose a lot of egg (sometimes more than others - so maybe i don't crack them enough before hand?)

Try steaming them like you would fresh vegetables.
The shell literally slides off , I think you will like the method.

ok this has me interested --- how do you do it? put them in cold water - then steam? put them in the steaming water? for how long?

Use a steamer rack to hold them above the water, so that only steam is touching them. Its best to place them in the rack while the water is heating up.
The shells slip off so easily it seems like cheating.
It does take slightly longer to hard "boil" them this way, but its worth the extra two or three minutes you have to add by not immersing them in the water.
