Not enough eggs
We are going through a difficult production patch at the moment. Our new flock of birds is only just starting to lay (15 eggs yesterday) and all our older girls are slowing down because of the cold weather.
As a result our egg production is down about 70 - 80 dozen a week which makes it impossible to go to any of the Farmers' Markets we normally attend.
We've had to miss the last markets at Inverloch, Churchill Island and at Pakenham which is a bit of a pain.
We don't like disappointing our market customers but we have to look after our home deliveries and the weekly orders from restaurants and stores.
We expect to be back on track soon with a weekly production level of around 400 dozen or so and then we can get back to the markets.
