Pippa Jackson’s son Jasper, 5, of Park School, enjoyed hatching eggs in the last lockdown as a science project on life cycles, and, “fell utterly in love with them!” They kept the girls but the boys were ethically rehomed on a free range farm.
Pippa said: “They’ve taught us all so much about life cycles, and I now use their fabulous eggs in my cakes. They’re called Margaret (Hatcher), Billina, Theresa (Lay) and Camilla Parker Fowls. “The company we used for the eggs was Living Eggs (Reading and South West) who were unbelievably helpful. The program is designed for primary schools and came with lots of teachers resources about life cycles so we could recreate the KS1 science learning outcomes at home. “
