When you purchase an egg, hatch it in the appropriate brazier. A bird will hatch from the egg. (Note: of course, the egg will be destroyed in the process. If you desire to keep an egg, well, don't hatch it.) The precise mechanics of hatching an egg are yours to figure out. The birds range from canaries to hummingbirds to swallows to many more, and the type of bird that hatches from your egg will depend on the type of brazier you use to hatch it. We'll leave it for you to figure out the combinations. The eggs and the birds are for decoration/fun only. They are not meant for any utility nor combat purpose. If you happen to find a way to use them in such a way, please consider that a bug and report it using BUG. As with all artefacts, the birds hatched from the eggs will reset to their owner. All birds will respond to "Sing, <bird type>." Metal and gemstone birds will respond to "Fly up, <bird type>" and "Land, <bird type>". Gemstone birds will respond to "Hop up, <bird type>" as well as "Come along, <bird type>".
