We only have three Hens at the moment; Richard above, and the two lazy Maran Bimbos.
Richard lays a good sized egg every day, the Bimbos are still too young (I presume), even though they were sold to us as 'point of lay'.
Richard is almost a pet, she sits/shits by our feet, follows us around constantly, and behaves rather like a dog. She is a Hen with identity problems.
These are her eggs, and they're beauties.
Thank you Richard, your generosity will be rewarded in gastronomy heaven.
p.s. And here it is; Lady Magnon used three of Richard's eggs to make a 'light-as-air' sponge cake yesterday, with Gariguette Strawberries and thick cream.
Oh boy.... Lead me to the confessional.
