I saw that in Country Smallholding and didn't believe it. I plan to contact them to get the right information. I'm not killing Hector.

weve always had mr cockerel running with the hens and will continue to do so, never had any indication of problems in eggs probably a million to one shot to ever find anything so will carry on as we are.

now that's a weird concept...
At least my "minority" birds or was it "specialty"? are allowed as their eggs can't be graded. I do feel for all of you with all that fuzz about a spot in an egg...:&>

just think of it as a little extra protein. the Filipino's like eating half developed eggs and pay a premium so maybe a new market.

yes, I saw that program! I think I rather eat worms myself (if it has to be something exotic or authentic)....

With the weird concept I meant having something hatching out of a Tesco's egg, lol:&>

I did hear of a bloke who bought an oven ready bird from Tesco and resuscitated it at home. He's got a pretty good flock now and none of them need plucking!

Not sure the hens have a chance to think about it - or maybe that's just Hector's technique.

watching the ducks - most times they'd rather do something else if they had the chance to get away...might be the same with hens, lol :&>

Hello,

Surely if the eggs are fresh what's the problem ? I buy my eggs from a neighbours farm (my granddaughter even hatched some once) and I've never had any problems. Need to round-up all these H&S lunatics but that's another story....


Regards

Tony
