Australian Eggs managing director Rowan McMonnies said the absence of eggs in supermarkets is driven by higher than normal demand, and is not a refection of the continuity of supply.

"Australia's 21 million hens are still laying eggs and farmers are working around the clock to get those eggs to their customers," he said.

The Herbert's were later married in the late 1930s.

"The best thing that the family ever did was to come to Australia in early 1952 and build a house ourselves on five rural acres west of Sydney," Mrs Herbert said.
