    Hi Caroline,Did you know my cousin’s (the other side) husband runs the egg stall at the Fermoy Farmers Market. The hens are out around the farm like at Nana and Grandads. I STILL don’t eat eggs though!

    I didn’t realise that at all, Maria. It’s nice to hear of the hens being able to wander free – but I do remember being in terror of them when I was on Nana and Grandad’s farm and very small! I’ll definitely be going back to that market – maybe you’ll be around the next time?!

    Do you remember the way Grandad used to treat the hens…he would stroke them under their chin and they loved it!!!Ya hopfully I’ll be around the next time..let me know.

    I’d forgotten that! They used to get almost hypnotised when he stroked them. Will definitely let you know the next time I’m in that angle of the country.
