The egg glut


This is annoying! At this time of year the hens are producing fewer eggs. Temperatures are starting to drop and the days are getting shorter. Winter is approaching and the hens are responding accordingly. And then we find a clutch of eggs (the 3rd in the past few weeks) which we can't sell as we don't know how old they are. These clutches mean we have a large number of eggs to use up. Fortunately, the Bowes Show is approaching and we will be using lots of the eggs to make flans, cakes etc which will go into the various competitions that are held.
