Mrs. Aves had four strange, colourful and very loud birds balanced on her arms and another one on her head. “Class, today is Crazy Critter Day. Let me introduce you to my five pets. This is Gabby, Skittles, Gizmo, Bonbon, and Noodles.”

“Two, four, six, eight, ten,” counted Mei-li.
“Oh goodness! Eggs cannot be moved!” panicked Mrs. Aves. “My pets will have to stay here until their eggs hatch!”
