The Thoery is young hens lay more smaller ones in the first laying season and fewer bigger ones in the seconed season. Eggcelent (sorry couldn't resist)
Back from Greece now,it was very hot,very expensive,very busy,although Mykonos is a lovely island with breath taking sunsets and views to die for BUT it just wasnt the kind of place for us really,maybe when I was 17-20 I would have not wanted to come home from there but when ya get old like me lol ya just want peace and quiet away from the hussle and bussle of a hectic life. Everything and everyone had one speed FAST! Here a few pics of the holiday (dont want to bore you too much).
more on the allotment soon ....B-J x

the egg on the right is from one of the black and white chickens weighing in at just 1.25 oz this is her first egg,these will get bigger in time.
and not a sound from the coop either,we will have to find some big slices of bread to go with these eggs!
This link will take you to a site all about eggs,nutrition,recipes,correct storage and more...
As I was updating the blog just now, I got a BBC news alert about 250 Battery Hens being rescued,they have gone to a place in Haslingden Lancashire right near me,this is the link if you want to read about it http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/lancashire/6940180.stm, the hens are now available for re-homing via the Battery Hen Welfare Trust.
Note to self: B-J you can't have anymore Chickens,you have enough now! :-)
