It seems lockdowns on free ranging birds are the norm every winter now doesnít it.  I can see a move back to barn eggs at this rate.   My lot are in roofed runs as well, but that is not really an option on a commercial scale.

Freezer looks good  :)

I think you're right about moving back to barn eggs - whatever happens I think the days of dirt cheap eggs are over.

The freezer is a comfort when prices are shooting up and those in the know warning of supply problems heading our way.

Hugely impressive freezer  :)

My parents had a large chest freezer when I was growing up. I'm pretty sure Mum couldn't reach the stuff at the bottom  :lol:
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...
