Hard Boiled Chicken

Once upon a time there was a chicken who really, really wanted to keep the eggs that she laid and raise a family. 

Unfortunately, the farmer has other ideas.  So, she enlists the help of the local rooster who is (one can only assume) the father of her unborn chick.

How he goes about retrieving the errant egg forms the basis of this wonderfully made (and often quite knowing animation), created for S4C by Dutch based art house Animation Works

This is a simple tale but quite modern at the same time.  Enjoy!
