thank you girls!

Well, this day had to come. The girls who supply me with fresh, organic eggs can’t do it anymore and they are retiring.
Mr D, who owns the girls, wrote a lovely letter explaining that hens can only lay for so long and that he is far too attached to them to – you know – yet he doesn’t have room enough for a fresh brood unless he (gets rid of them). Which is not happening! So the girls are staying.
They will continue to scratch for worms and beetles in Mr D’s garden and keep an eye on the caterpillars in the cabbages, but there will be no more eggs. Well, perhaps the occasional one for Mr D’s breakfast, but not enough for my cakes. So I’m looking for a new source of fresh eggs. And the girls? Well, they’re having a lie in.
Thank you girls!
