Egg production has stopped up here at Schloss Geisterwald. Here's why:
All three of my hens have gone into moult, as has Sebastian Vettel the rooster, who has dropped some of his glamorous tail feathers and now looks decidedly scruffy.
I have two young girls who are only 13 weeks old and so some way off laying. The pullets I have ordered are not due to be collected until April/May. So we have entered the annual period of egg poverty and if I need eggs I'll have to BUY some. Wouldn't it be good if Australian consumers could choose which eggs they want to buy using consistent labeling? What do you think "free range" means?
