Our lovely ladies have been giving us eggs for a couple of weeks now since getting them a few months ago. I’ve not had bantam chooks before, so it’s taking a little bit of getting used to, but these ladies really get me smiling. 3 Belgian D’Uccles, fluffy feet, tiny little bodies and they love a bum scratch!!
The eggs are a little… erm, little but a ratio of 2:1 is a fair guess for baking and eating. There’s something that really tickles my fancy about cracking an egg that’s half the size of a regular egg, you almost have to squidge down whilst you crack it on the side of the relatively giant-sized pan, saying meep-meep while you do!
