 * About Eggs and Braziers
Braziers are available at the Shop of Wonders, priced in gold. When you
purchase an egg, hatch it in the appropriate brazier. A bird will hatch from
the egg. (Note: of course, the egg will be destroyed in the process. If you
desire to keep an egg, well, don't hatch it.) The precise mechanics of hatching
an egg are yours to figure out. The birds range from canaries to hummingbirds
to swallows to many more, and the type of bird that hatches from your egg will
depend on the type of brazier you use to hatch it. We'll leave it for you to
figure out the combinations.

The eggs and the birds are for decoration/fun only. They are not meant for any
utility nor combat purpose. If you happen to find a way to use them in such a
way, please consider that a bug and report it using BUG.

As with all artefacts, the birds hatched from the eggs will reset to their

All birds will respond to "Sing, <bird type>." Metal and gemstone birds will
