It's that time of year. Collecting eggs is a passion for any chicken lover but in these weeks before the big Easter chocolate egg-fest it's time to celebrate the real thing. 

You can try painting your eggs this year and create a lovely Easter centrepiece. Or why not try your hand at some of Bill Grainger's famous Ricotta Hotcakes?

Whether they be fresh from your newly constructed lockdown chicken coup, from the local farmer's market or a free-range dozen from the supermarket it's all about the chicken and the egg. Or is that the egg and the chicken?
