Marjorie the cow doesn't feel very special. She can't ride bicycles or do cartwheels like the other cows. But one morning, Marjorie is astonished to discover something extraordinary...She's laid an egg! But does the baby inside the egg really belong to Marjorie? Emotions run high in the farmyard as everyone waits to find out...
