"When, nearly a month ago, the egg of a parrot belonging to a resident of Christchurch, was broken, the bird's owner placed a small bantam’s egg in its cage, and the parrot began to sit (says the Lyttelton Times). On Saturday a bantam chick was hatched out. The parrot has taken a kindly interest in the newcomer, and feeds it from its beam The two promise to be great friends."
