How long will boiled eggs stay good in the fridge?

I'm boiling a dz eggs right now and am wondering how long they will ok in the fridge, with their shells on? I'm planning on just putting them back into their container. Thanks-sara

My general rule is that if I haven't used them in 1-1.5 weeks I get rid of them. I have no basis for that, though; a week or so just happens to be my general rule for leftovers and prepared foods!

I try to use them up within a week. Although I know when I was a kid we would eat them for at least 2 weeks and never had any problems.

I've opened up a hard boiled egg after 3 weeks, and it's still fine. You can definitely use it after 1 week, for sure. It doesn't have the same "5-7 day rule" as fresh cooked food does.
