APRIL FOOLS DAY!
March is now over and April is here! To celebrate April fools day we thought it would be nice to reflect on some chicken and egg pranks that have happened over the years! Hopefully you avoid any pranks today! 1. Square shaped Eggs! In 2014, ITV 'reported' that a farm in Suffolk called 'Freedom Food Farm' had reared chickens which laid square eggs!
