What is your nest egg worth?

What’s Your Nest Egg Worth This Easter?

The commonly used phrase “nest egg” originated in the 14th century but in the 17th century it became attached to the practice of poultry farmers putting fake eggs in to the nests of chickens to encourage them to lay. More eggs meant more money for the farmer, hence the phrase “nest egg”. Nowadays the term is a common one in estate agency to describe the process of putting aside money for your child’s future, most commonly as investment in property, or saving for a rainy day, or to provide retirement income.
