Chickens aren’t the only ones

The hatchling peeping out of an egg is an Elwetritsch, a mythical creature from the Southwest of Germany. This particular one is part of a fountain in Neustadt an der Weinstraße.  If you want to read up on Elwetritsche (apparently they’ve made their way to the New World where they are known amongst the Pennsylvania Dutch as Elbedritsch) you can look them up on Wikipedia.

This is in response to The Daily Post prompt “Egg” – more eggy posts can be found here.
