An egg in the garden. An egg on the path. An egg in a shoe. An egg in the bath. 'Cluck, cluck! Wonderful me! Cackle, cackle! My eggs are free!' Young Nelson despairs that his hen won’t lay her eggs in his henhouse, so decides to lock her in until she lays in the nest. But Omeletta is a stubborn creature and refuses to lay any eggs at all until she is freed.
