The eggs factor

Thought I’d take the opportunity this week to spill the beans on a cracking new series in Country Living, starting in the October issue. You may have noticed a mini henkeeping column in the magazine over the past few months as part of our Simple Pleasures series – well, the good news is that we’ve a brand-new section called A Month in the Country and The Eggs Factor is bigger and better. Written by Surrey-based poultry farmer and expert Suzie Baldwin – author of the wonderful Chickens (Kyle Cathie, £14.99) – it’s full of lovely stories about her hens, which come in all different shapes and sizes, including Buff Orpingtons, Frizzles, Polish and Silkies, as well as hybrids.

In each issue, she also provides reminders about jobs to do plus she takes a different topic and offers her inspiring tips and practical advice. It’s amazing what poultry-friendly properties pumpkin seeds have… You can find out what they are in the October issue of Country Living on sale 10 September (or subscribe here).
