And All the Kings' Horses by Rod Hayward
A young man returns home to discover that his new bride has built a nest in the living room and is attacking anyone who comes near. He is visited by the local priest and an elderly woman who lives next door. They reassure him that this behaviour is quite normal. His wife subsequently lays three eggs, one of which is lost through the husband's carelessness. This traumatized egg rises up against the best intents of its parents who are powerless to exert control over it, even after they discover that eggs are delicious.
