The day is brisk. Fluffy meringue clouds fill he sky. Nonno takes the girls to check the coop and they find a delicate speckled quail egg. "Where is the big egg?" asks My little one. "The hen is still on the nest," replies her sister. "I want to see!"
A few minutes later they are back. "Look Mama, it's still warm!" says my first born holding out a perfect freshly laid egg.
