    If you want to make hard boiled eggs, you have answers.

    I wonder if the question is What color was George Washington's white horse? though.

    boiled eggs are already cooked.  If you mean how to boil eggs, this is what I do...put them in a kettle. Add tap water. put on stove to boil..when the water is at  full rolling boil, cover adn remove from heat. wait 10 minutes, remove from hot water and put into a bowl if ice water to stop the cooking and shock them..when they are cool, peel..done.

    7 minutes for soft boiled, 12 for hard boiled.

    Get an egg piercer or use a pin and poke a small hole in the big end. 

    Get a big pan of water (enough to cover to the eggs by 2 inches) boiling.

    Place eggs in rolling boiling water and cook for 12-15 minutes (12 minutes will likely have a dark yellow center almost cooked completely. over 15 will give you completely cooked) Immediately move the eggs to a big bowl of ice water until cooled, should peel with ease too. No green layer if you follow these directions.

    If the eggs are boiled they are already cooked. 

    To "boil" an egg to cook it time will depend on the size of the egg

    Large egg, Place in a pan of water, room temperature is fine. 

    Bring the water to a boil. 

    Put the lid on the pan. 

    Turn off the heat. 

    Set your timer for 13 minutes (for a firm yolk)

    After the 13 minutes drain the water and add cool water let the eggs cool so you can handle them. 

    For each other size egg larger add 1 or 2 minutes to the cook time, for smaller eggs reduce cook time by 1 or 2 minutes.

    I have no idea how long you cook them but I boil them for around four minutes if I want soft boiled eggs. For hard boiled I really don't time them - maybe ten minutes or so I guess.
