When featherless beings are very young, they curl up inside a round object that comes pre-installed with everything they could ever need – food, shelter, warmth.
Even after hatching, their parents feed them through an easy-peasy process called “beak grabbing” – when the adult upchucks partially digested delicacies right into the baby’s open and waiting beak.
It goes without saying the baby’s part here is fairly effortless.
So it just stands to reason that grown chicks, now saddled with the full daily effort of foraging for their own supper, might remember their baby days with fondness.
And, occasionally, they might even enjoy dining “in shell” once again.
