(JP: 'A bit of a domestic crisis in the course of that because Sheila, my wife, came in, and having come back with the Layers' Pellets, I said to her, "Actually, I'd quite like a couple of boiled eggs," and she said, "We've only got one." I said, "We've got about twenty hens out there! One egg?!" It turns out this is the time of year when they don't lay them, but at the same time productivity is an important issue, you know. And I just know that there are hens in somewhere like Central America or somewhere in Korea that are laying three or four eggs a day for virtually no food whatsoever. I think, what are our hens doing out there? Just sitting out there? I can see them from here, just pottering about, enjoying the sunshine, doing nothing. I think it's disgraceful.')
(JP: 'I've been watching those chickens, you know. They just loaf about, they do nothing. Productivity? They don't even know what it means. I think when I've finished this programme I shall go out and have a severe word with them, and perhaps drop the hint that I may leave the bob hole closed one of these evenings and the fox will get in there and get 'em. That happened last year, actually, it was extremely unpleasant, I have to admit. I had to go around with bin liners collecting up all these little frozen corpses out of the snow. Not nice, foxes.')
