Although we’ve had our chickens over a year now I still haven’t worked out when they lay their eggs! So when we are outside and the children want to collect the eggs I never know if there will be 1, 2 or none!
The other day the children ran over to the chicken coop and lifted the lid excitedly only to find there were no eggs and exclaimed “Oh no!” disappointedly. It reminded me of the book we love to read “Oh Dear!” by Rod Campbell where Buster goes to stay with his Grandma and looks all over for the eggs, each time exclaiming “No eggs here! Oh dear!”. Buster does eventually find the eggs in the henhouse. It’s a lift the flap book which always proves popular with little hands!
