some colourful free-range eggs

On the way back from the horses, The Crow and I stopped off at Mill House Farm in Stoke Mandeville (Aylesbury).  Mill House Farm is a family run chicken centre where you can purchase chickens (ones specially bred to lay eggs in a domestic environment), as well as eggs.  Even better, for those who would like their own chicken but can’t, for whatever reason, keep them, (if you live within a 10 mile radius of the farm) you can join their rent-a-hen scheme where, on a pre-determined basis you can collect the eggs that your rented hen lays, therefore ensuring you a constant stream of fresh and tasty eggs.  Eggsellent! (sorry, couldn’t resist)
