What’s not to love about Springtime? In this newsletter you’ll find some great new products for the breakfast table, the world’s fastest omelette, and some advice from Barbara on what chickens can and cannot eat in the garden. There are lots more goodies so read on, enjoy, and have a wonderful bank holiday weekend!

Market Kitchen

The eglu will be making an appearance on UKTV food’s ‘Market Kitchen’ this Monday and it will be joined by the equally famous celebrity presenter Kay Burley. The Sky News presenter is a great fan of Omlet, she will be on the show talking about her eglu cube and the chickens that live in it. The programme will be shown at 7pm on Monday 25th May so whether you’re a fan or a foodie, don’t miss it!

 

Just look at the size of Cathie’s yorkies!

Recipe Results

Speaking of food, we received some eggcellent recipes for our cooking competition. The variety you came up with just goes to show what a versatile ingredient eggs really are. Thankyou to everyone that entered, but there could only be one winner, and the recipe that caught our eye the most was sent in by Cheryl Pasquier. Her ‘Eggstremely Nice Turtle Sandwiches’ speak for themselves…and here’s how to make them:

Per sandwich:

1 pitta bread,
1 egg, beaten,
Knob of butter,
Splash of milk,
Handful of grated cheese,
Handful of cooked bacon or ham, chopped,
1 Spring onion
2 raisins.

Directions:

  1. Preheat the grill.
  2. In a saucepan, melt the butter over a low heat. Add the milk to the beaten egg, mix and pour into the pan. Heat for a few minutes, stirring constantly, then add the bacon/ham, cheese and spring onion and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the eggs are firm and cooked through. (In other words, make scrambled eggs !!)
  3. While the eggs are cooking, cut the pitta bread in two halves to make two pockets and warm under the grill for a couple of minutes.
  4. Cut a strip off one pitta pocket, then cut the strip in half, to make a smaller pocket (the head) and four squares for the feet.
  5. Fill the pockets with the scrambled egg mixture (it needs to be quite firm and not runny otherwise this could get messy !!) and put them both on a plate next to each other (the head and the body). Use a tiny dab of cheese spread or mayonnaise to stick the raisins on the small pocket as eyes and arrange the four “feet” around the body. (You can get artistic and sprinkle some chopped chives on the plate to make grass or add some salad leaves!)

With a pitta imagination you can make this turtle sandwich too.  Don’t forget to sea son it.

 

The Hamilton Omelette

Is it a car? Is it a plane? No, it’s the worlds fastest omlette!  The last thing we were eggspecting to see just three days before the Spanish grand prix was Lewis Hamilton cooking omelettes in the hills above Barcelona but that’s exactly what the ace formula one driver was doing. Could it be his secret weapon in the fight for this years championship?  Did he enter it in the cookery competition only to be disqualified when we found out his team had helped him with the recipe?  Does Lewis Hamilton even keep chickens?  Email Stephanie@omlet.co.uk with your idea and we’ll print the best in the next newsletter.

Egg on your Face

Thought painting and decorating eggs was only for Easter? Wrong! One artist in Bournemouth paints eggs day in day out, as a professional egg artist. (Yes, we’d like that job too!) But what is even more unusual is what it is she paints on them…clown faces. There is in fact method to this madness, and the story starts over 60 years ago.

In 1946 a member of Clowns International, Stan Bult, had a hobby – he liked to paint images of clowns’ faces on blown chickens’ eggs. No yolk!! He kept his collection at home, loaning to exhibitions for show. After his death the collection was still lent out until an accident destroyed most of them. When Clown Bluey became chairman of Clowns International in 1984 he chose to continue the tradition, and hired a professional artist to register new clowns and reproduce the destroyed eggs.

Kate Stone is now the artist to create miniature clown portraits to update the collection. She uses bits of fabric, paint and even clippings of the clown’s wig to decorate the eggs, and each finished piece acts as a record of that individual. The eggstraordinary collection is on display in The Clowns Museum in London.

Decorate an Egg Head

If you’re feeling inspired by the clown egg register and you think you could do a pretty good job of creating some eggcellent artwork yourself, get your paintbrushes at the ready for this month’s competition. Decorate your own egg to look like a face and you could win a £20 voucher to spend in the online shop. Just think, you could buy an eggstra special egg cup to display your prize portrait egg! Whether you create an egg like a clown, like a tiger, or even a self portrait, just take a snap and send to stephanie@omlet.co.uk, or if you want to really impress us send your carefully wrapped egg to Decorate an Egg Competition, Omlet Ltd, Tuthill Park, Wardington, Banbury, Oxon, OX17 1RR. The closing date is 9th June. Good luck!



Is Lewis Hamilton the new face of Omlet?

 

The Clown Museum is proof that clowns are full of good yolks!

Vegging out

Chickens are funny creatures. I’m afraid I get very envious to hear other chicken owners telling me that their hens tuck enthusiastically into slugs and snails while my girls won’t touch them, to the detriment of our poor cabbage seedlings which seem to be disappearing to slugs daily. And yet they fight each other over earwigs, spiders and worms which don’t trouble the veggie seedlings at all! Most days we are entertained by a “tug of war” over a wee beastie which one of them has managed to catch in the run, and these tussles always seem to be accompanied by indignant squawks and high speed dashes with the tasty morsel held high in a tightly clamped beak as the others try to wrestle the treat away from its finder!

It is so funny to watch but it’s hard not to think about what they have been eating when I have boiled eggs for breakfast the following day! They can be ruthless killers though and I get emails from chicken owners who have been horrified to find their hens consuming frogs, mice and even baby birds! They are omnivores and I’m afraid this means that they will eat just about anything which happens to get in their way and isn’t able to escape quickly enough.

Sometimes chickens will eat the strangest things though. I remember seeing one of my hens gobble up a big piece of silicone sealant which she’d unearthed in the run one day. It didn’t do her any harm at all and she’s still around several years later. A couple of years ago, we were all amused on the forum to hear about a hen that used to eat all of the Mastick around one owner’s door frames! I can’t imagine that it would taste nice but this particular hen seemed to think that it was a real delicacy.

What surprises me is that hens do seem to be quite sensible when it comes to poisonous plants in the garden though. They seem to know what to avoid, so I wonder if the really dangerous plants taste unpleasant and that’s why they give them a wide berth? The only things to avoid letting hens eat are spicy or salty foods, meat or raw potatoes in any form, and avocados which are supposed to be toxic to pets. Anything else goes…usually as soon as it hits the ground…and doesn’t run fast enough!

Omlet Newsletter May 5th 2009

Hello!

With another Bank Holiday just gone we hope you’re feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and ready to read our wonderful newsletter. Eggs seem to be the theme this time, with news that eggs really are good for you, a new feed that will keep your hens laying for years and years and a recipe for a different take on boiled egg and soldiers. You can win some great prizes in our cooking competition, learn how to stop nasty slugs from spoiling all your veggies and have a sneak preview of the shop’s latest goodies too. So pour yourself a cuppa and read on…

Organic Omlet Chicken Feed

Omlet are proud to introduce the new and eggciting Organic Omlet Chicken Feed. Think the bag looks cool? Well that’s just the start. The food inside is not only delicious but a carefully balanced concoction of ingredients that will do wonders for your hens. There are over 20 natural vitamins and minerals for maintaining your chicken’s immune system, carbohydrate and fibre to give energy and a healthy digestive system, and limestone and manganese to ensure eggshells are tough and strong. And the best bit is there is eggsactly the right amount of protein for hens to lay more consistently over a longer period of time. Eggsquisite! A 10kg bag is available now for £8.00

The Omlet formula for years of eggs

 

Three Cheers for Eggs

If you love eggs now there is a reason to love them even more. According to a recent article eggs are the perfect food! But what makes them so good for you? They have the highest protein rating than any other food, they have nutrients including vitamin A, B, D, E, folic acid, zinc, calcium, potassium and iron, and they contain essential fatty acids. And are they bad for your cholesterol? Apparently not…a new discovery suggests that egg yolks have the perfect balance of monounsaturated fat which has been known to raise good cholesterol. So go on, enjoy that boiled egg!

And now for more good news about eggs…this week coming to your screens is the first national tv advert to promote an egg brand in years. The Happy Egg Company has done a brilliant job of bringing free range eggs to our supermarkets, and it strives to keep its hens as happy as can be with farms that provide plenty of space for them to roam and forage. The advert features Happy Egg Producer John Michalski driving a quad bike with one of his hens on the back, to ‘Born to be Wild’. A farmer and his rock chick? We think you will be hentertained!

With news that eggs are great for health and happiness this fella holds his close to his heart!
Marathon madness

You may remember that a certain member of Omlet HQ was preparing to run the London Marathon a couple of weeks back. Well, did he succeed? … Of course he did! And we didn’t doubt it for a second. Not only did he conquer the 26 miles in searing heat, with no sun cream (and a nice pink tinge to prove it), but he managed it in a smashing time of 4 hours and 48 minutes. The brave soldier even managed to make it into work at 9am Monday morning despite his sunburn and aching legs, for the good of the team.

Thank you to those of you that kindly sponsored him for the run. With your help he has achieved more than his target donations, with a total of £1,048.49 so far. This will go to the Army Benevolent Fund, which is a very good cause indeed. Well done James!

With enough speed and arm flapping, James believed he could fly… to the finish line!

Everyone that enters will receive a freebie, and the winner will get a cracking selection of kitchen goodies. So why not give it a try?

This choc-a-doodle-cake could be a winner

 

Cooking corner

After much negotiation, the deal was done. A dozen hens’ eggs and a sponge cake for the Village Fete, in exchange for a few duck eggs. The Vicar drives a hard bargain, but explained his ducks weren’t laying that well. I have it on good authority that he traded two dozen with the Postmaster for a jug of ‘homebrew’ cider! Perhaps that would explain his lack of eggs!

Duck eggs are available in most supermarkets and farm shops, and finding a local supplier will guarantee freshness. They are larger and richer than those of their land-based cousins, fantastic for golden sponges and cakes. I have decided to use them simply this time, using the first tender spears of fresh asparagus.

Boiled Duck Eggs with Asparagus Soldiers

Serves 2

2 duck eggs
A handful of asparagus spears
1tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2tsp balsamic vinegar

  1. Boil the duck eggs for 5 minutes.
  2. ‘Snap’ the asparagus at the base to remove the woody part and then boil or steam until tender.
  3. Drizzle virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the asparagus and use as soldiers to dunk into the soft boiled eggs.

Simple! Now if only I could make cider, I would never want for duck eggs again…

Boiled eggs – the food of kings

Vegging out

May is a great month for starting to sow some more delicate seeds directly outside. Anything that you may have forgotten to sow under cover can now be sown direct. The risk of frosts has now past (hopefully), so the chances of losing your seedlings to the cold is unlikely.

It’s also the time of year when there are many more insects and molluscs in the garden. Some are beneficial, others are a garden’s nightmare. It’s hard for a ‘grow your own’ fan like me to have a balanced opinion on what to do about the unwanted pests in my garden. I like to use few, if any, chemicals on my soil and plants and I have to think carefully about the safety of my chickens.

So this is my plan of action, starting now. I’ve bought some slug nematodes from an online supplier which are a microscopic worm that uses slugs as a host and kills them. They’re simple to use and very effective. You just dilute the packet with water and add to the soil. I also use slug pubs as a fall back.

To make a Slug Pub:

  1. Take one empty, clean yogurt pot (the individual portion ones are fine).
  2. Dig a hole so you can almost bury the pot, just leave a little proud of the surface.
  3. Make sure the soil around it is securely packed in.
  4. Add beer, lager or cider (cheap or out of date alcohol is fine).
  5. Wait until slugs climb in and meet a cheery end. Empty frequently.

You may need to use several “pubs” around your garden for best effect.

Obviously, slugs and snails are not the only pest that can ruin your veggies. Later on in the year the dreaded Cabbage White Butterfly loves to lay its eggs on your brassicas so the hatched caterpillars can devour your cabbages, caulis and broccoli. There are some great insect nettings on the market which act as a physical barrier to the butterflies but I also plant nasturtiums in the garden. These are very attractive to the Cabbage White Caterpillars and are eaten in preference to your brassicas. The petals of the nasturtium are also lovely to eat in salads.

Aphids are also a huge pest, especially in the greenhouse amongst your tomatoes and peppers. I like to plant French and pot marigolds and dill in close proximity to my tomatoes. The dill attracts hover flies which predate the aphids and the marigolds’ scent deters the aphids. Just like the nasturtiums, marigold petals are delicious added to salads.

I don’t want to deter all insect life from my garden though. Bees and other pollinating insects do an excellent job of pollinating vegetables for us. It’s important to attract as many types of bee to our gardens as possible by planting scented and brightly coloured flowers. I always have lavender around my garden as its scent is lovely and can be used in many sweet dishes in the kitchen. I also love sunflowers, bees adore them and they are so beautiful to look at. At the end of the season the birds love the seeds…if I don’t get there first!

One man’s heaven is another slug’s hell.

Our range of Pocket Gardens are the perfect way to get you growing some lovely plants quickly and easily, and the edible narsturtium, sweet smelling lavender and colourful sunflower are all available at £3.92 in the online shop. We also have a few to give away, and all you need to do to have the chance to win one is send a photo of your Slug Pub to stephanie@omlet.co.uk.

A pocket full of pocket gardens for you to win

Course host of the week

Cathy Howells

Where and with who do you live? I live with my husband and three sons in Fleckney, a small village in South Leicestershire.

How long have you been keeping chickens? Two and a half years.

What made you decide to keep chickens? I read the blog of a lady who was getting an eglu and three chickens and just loved the idea of productive pets for the children and myself! (I’ve never been into bunnies!)

How many chickens do you have and what are their names? Hmm, OK, you did ask! 14 chickens: Big Bertha, Florrie, Pom, Bella, Rosie, Little Bo, Roley Mo, Bambi, Sugar, Spice, Pepper, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Clove. Is that 14? Did I forget anyone?

What’s your favourite thing about the eglu? I’am very aware that we have close neighbours, and the eglu cube is perfect as it is quick and easy to clean and keep sweet smelling!

What do you like doing when you’re not hosting hen parties? The emphasis here is on doing – as long as I am doing something I am happy! Workwise I make and sell bags from recycled fabrics via my website and work part time as a self employed Occupational Health Nurse Specialist. I also run a toddler group in the village. Any spare time is spent with the boys gardening and on our new allotment!

Why did you decide to become a hen party host? Because my friends got fed up with me talking about chickens and I needed a new audience!

When was your first course and how did it go? I did my first course in December 2007. It went really well! I like to encourage attendees to ask lots of questions – after all the course is about what they need to know, not what I want to tell them.

What do your courses include? Over tea and coffee I do a brief intro about myself, then spend time answering questions and trying to squeeze in the information that they need to know. I encourage them to browse through my selection of chicken books and magazines so they know what sources of information are available. Then we go outside and play with the cube and do a bit of chicken wrangling. I try to make sure that everyone has had the opportunity to catch and hold a chicken at least once as that is often a big concern for people. Then we go back inside for homemade fresh cream victoria sponge, final questions and they all go home with a goody bag and a fresh egg.

Have there been any course disasters? I’m too organised for disasters! Although one of my girls did poop all down a guest’s smart jacket once!

What’s the best thing about being a hen party host?
It’s really fun and I get to talk about my favourite thing – the chickens! We meet a range of people old and young and we show just exactly how much fun chicken keeping and egg collecting is!

Why should people attend a course? Because it’s important to see how chickens actually fit into a domestic garden environment and to be made aware of the pitfalls as well as the bonuses. I would rather someone decide against keeping chickens than to get them and decide six months down the line that chicken keeping is not for them.

Course Review

“Had a wonderful morning talking to Cathy who is soooo knowledgeable (what she doesn’t know about chickens isn’t worth knowing). It was great to see the eglu cube in situ and the hens obviously love it……Being able to handle the hens was a joy and we were surprised at how big they are. The course overran somewhat with all of us asking questions but Cathy was the perfect host and did not appear to be in a rush to get rid of us. The morning was rounded off by being offered a slice of the most delicious victoria sponge sandwich cake, complete with jam and fresh cream (yum yum). The sponge was bright yellow due to the fresh eggs that her willing hens had laid for her which made an EGGCEEDINGLY good cake!” – Neil & Sharon Windram.
