The Great Omlet Bake Off
Is your lemon cake lighter than air? Do your meringues melt in the mouth? Are your buns better than Mary Berry’s? Then take your place in The Great Omlet Bake Off. With a £100 Omlet voucher up for grabs, it’s time to put on your pinnies, collect those eggs, and ready, steady, bake.
Rustle up your best sandwich cake, loaf of bread, tray of muffins or any other baked treat, and take two photos. One photo needs to show you holding your baked goods, and the other should be a clear shot of just the food.
You can enter by one of three ways: Send your images by email, using subject line ‘Great Omlet Bake Off’; on our Facebook Page; or on Twitter, using #greatomletbakeoff (Closing date for entries is September 15th.)
We will choose our top 10 bakes and put these to the public vote, with a £25, £50 and a £100 voucher to be won.
Eglu on ITV’s This Morning
Two This Morning appearances in one month!? What can we say…they must be Omlet fans! If you watched the show yesterday you might have spotted the Eglu Classic and Boughton Chicken Coop on their Pet Clinic Feature. Paul, the vet, discussed how to keep chickens and what health checks to do, and our model hen did a very good job of keeping cool, even when a camera was zoomed in on her rear end.
Ruth and Eammon didn’t seem convinced by the idea of keeping chickens as pets, but we think if we loaned them an Eglu for a few weeks they would soon see the light. After all, what could be better than having pets that have comedy value, are cheap to keep and provide you with free eggs?
Click here to catch up on the episode and skip to 1 hour 12 minutes in to see the Eglu.
Tweet of the Week
This week’s Tweet of the Week came from @guychurchward.
He tweeted a photo of his Eglu Cube hiding under trees, titled: Redwood ‘Fairy Ring’ all trimmed and proper #lovebeingaruralhippy
As if this picture wasn’t impressive enough, we were lucky enough to take a peek at some more photos of Guy’s garden, and it certainly has the wow factor. We counted at least two Eglus Gos, an Eglu Classic, an Eglu Cube and many handmade enclosures in his beautiful Californian surroundings. All topped off with a couple of hammocks for him to swing in and watch the chickens. Now, that’s what we call a henthusiast!

Beatrix and Alonzo
We love running competitions, and we love it even more when the prize winners get in touch to tell us how happy they are. This month we received a lovely email and photo from Beatrix’s Mum, to thank us for her daughter’s Alonzo the Chicken book prize. She was excited to start reading her new book, but we hear she was even more excited that her picture would be in the Omlet newsletter. What a little star!
Warwickshire College Welcomes New Qutes
If there was a competition for the largest number of Double Qutes in one room, Warwickshire College would win it. This impressive wall of Qute Hamster and Gerbil Cages is the latest addition to the college’s Animal Welfare and Veterinary Nursing school, and the teachers think they are fantastic. The students might have a bit of a surprise when they come back after the holidays though…
Eizabethan Guinea Pigs
It turns out that guinea pigs have been kept as pets for much longer than we realised. This painting, dating back to around 1580, shows Elizabethan children holding a little pet guinea pig in their arms. It is believed that it is the first portrait of a guinea pig in English art, and it will be on display in the National Portrait Gallery as part of the Elizabeth I and Her People exhibition. See it on display from the 10th October.
This does make us wonder what the pet housing was like back then. (Somewhat different to the Eglu we expect!)
