It’s nearly Easter, which means the supermarket shelves are stacked full of shiny chocolate eggs, but a national hen welfare charity is hoping the public will spare a thought for hens’ eggs at this time of year too. With that in mind, the British Hen Welfare Trust takes a quick look at how hens’ eggs stack up against their chocolate counterparts. For instance, did you know that on average there are 530 calories in a 100g Easter egg compared to just 131 calories in 100g worth of chicken egg? It’s certainly a fact worth knowing if you’re watching your waistline!

Jane Howorth MBE, founder of the BHWT, said: “I love a chocolate egg as much as the next person, and I’ll definitely be tucking into a chocolate one over Easter. But I’ll also be making sure I enjoy some fresh, free-range eggs for my breakfast on Easter Sunday, plucked straight from the nest box in my own garden.”
