#009 ethel the kiwi


"Ethel has been happily married for thirty years this year. In her time as the perfectly dedicated wife she’s worked hard to build up her reputation as the hen that lays the biggest eggs of them all. Her success as a mother she puts down to her time sent honing her phenomenal sense of smell. She follows her beak on what to eat and what not to eat, filling up on only the finest and most nutritious super-seeds she can find until she’s overstuffed and fit to burst. Then once she’s laid her egg, she defers all responsibility to her dutiful husband, puts her feet up and waits for hatching time." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
