If you are expecting a lot of people for breakfast then you might be interested to know that Waitrose has started stocking ostrich eggs in some of its stores. The eggs will be stocked in 31 branches whilst they are in season starting this week. The eggs are laid by South African Black Ostriches on a farm in Lincolnshire. They will go on sale at £18.99 each which might seems expensive but when you think that one egg is the equivalent of 24 hen eggs it certainly goes a long way. As for the cooking time required, if you are thinking of boiling it you need to allow between 50 and 90 minutes.
