The woman identified only as Irina in Metro was away with her partner for three weeks and returned to the sound of strange noises in their flat in Moscow. Initially, the couple thought that the sound was coming from damaged electronics but discovered several of the eggs left on the kitchen windowsill had begun hatching. Just like any excited parents, the couple invited their neighbours and friends who then created a small space for the chicks to take comfort in their new home. “They set up a box, put hay into it, rushed to a pet store and bought a special lamp, so they (the chicks) would feel warm,” Irina was quoted saying in the same report.
