The hens and the chocolate eggs

The hens laid the chocolate eggs around the garden again. We still don’t know how they wrap them in such pretty foil. Wings are built for flying, not wrapping. Everyone agreed they were very well camouflaged this year. In fact, two were so elusive that a second party had to be sent out to find them. Lots of eggs, which will last everyone for a very long time.

Good job the sun came out.

Happy Easter to everyone.

      I can’t believe how fast they all are now at finding the eggs.

    The eggs look great and the chicken looks slightly non-plussed.

    Happy Easter x

      She does a bit. Probably recognizes the shape, but puzzled by the shine and pattern.

      Ah. The secret is to feed the hens a little bit of chocolate the night before. Only works at Easter, and they only lay the chocolate eggs on Easter Sunday. No good pushing your luck.

    Wow – if I ever get a chicken, that’s the type I’ll get. 😉

      Only works on Easter Sunday. Hang on to your chocolate the rest of the year!
