When I was four and a half years old I spent a holiday on a farm in the country. My family lived in London where the only animals around, other than our dog, were pigeons and sparrows. So seeing cows and pigs and horses out in the fields, and meeting them close up, was very exciting. One of my jobs was to collect the hens’ eggs. There were no battery farms in those days and the hens were laying their eggs mostly in little wooden hen houses. Each day I put these eggs into my basket and after a while I began to wonder where, on the hen, was there a hole big enough for the egg to come out from?
