It was time for another trip to the “Big Egg” for another tray of free range eggs. It was lovely to see all the girls out enjoying the fresh air. The hens live in barns but are free to wander outside whenever they like. Some were busy having dust baths, and some were sheltering under one of the large trees. Others were clucking happily away as they pecked away in the grassy paddock, looking for insects to gobble up.
There was a sign inside on the shop counter which is so true. The rooster may well strut around feeling important and keep his harem in check, but it is those hard working hens which produce our daily eggs!
