Since the arrival of our six chickens a few weeks back, egg production has ramped up somewhat and not even the hungry Baker bunch can munch through them.  This week alone, the grandparents, neighbours, friends and even the teacher have had deliveries of eggs.  Interestingly today, I opened the nest box and there were five eggs one of which was two thirds bigger than the others. So I'm guessing the 'mini size' we've been collecting up until now are just beginners. Jolly good!

Needless to say, egg is on the menu and today's delight was swede, parsnip and onion rosti topped with poached eggs and flaked smoked ham.  Delicious!

You'll not find a york this orange in a shop bought egg, I promise you.


  1. They look delicious. And you're right, shop bought eggs never have that bright orange yolk. Rather disappointing for those of us who haven't got chickens!

  2. Free range all the way, and if there on grass all the better.

    Thanks for your comments :)
