Free Range Eggs
Where do our eggs come from?
All of our delicious eggs come from our Own birds here on the farm
All of our birds are free to roam at Wishing Wells,but due to predators (Mr Fox) the girls (and boys of course) have to be securely put away at night. Our feathered friends are regularly wormed.Eggs are collected throughout the day.Aswell as their usual diet (and grass) our birds look forward to their special treats.The Quail love their lettuce,The Ducks love their bread,The Turkeys love their nettle salad the Chicken love their greens and the Geese love their clover.Of course they all have access to grit which helps their digestion and improves the quality of the egg shell,Clean water and lots of T.L.C.All in all their happy lives is what gives our visitors a much nicer,fresh and we hope good quality egg.Below are the different types of egg they give us:
