Roast chicken anyone???
NOT feeling the love!!!!!!!

WAY TO GO HONDA!!!
There was all kinds of excitement in our house yesterday when our lovely hen Honda laid her first egg. Andrew was cleaning out the hen house when I noticed Honda doing some rather strange behaviors and I said to Andrew she is going to lay an egg. He laughed and more of less told me I was dreaming. But true to form I went back down to the hen house about half an hour later and there it was…… the first egg!!! There were squeals of delight (from me). Ben and Andrew hurried to get the camera and headed down to witness the extravaganza. Ben just wanted to hold it and I was sure he would crack it…… which he did so we had to hurry and scramble it. It was delicious…… well done Honda!
