Junkies, Chickys, and Clergy, hoping for a free lunch. That sounds about right.

One of my office mates has a chicken coop and several chickens. She recently... Not sure of the decision process, but she gets eggs from the chickens to eat all the time, but recently a clutch of eggs were allowed (?) to become chicks. The hen hatched one egg, cute baby chick emerged. The hen the pushed the other two eggs out of the nest. My friend found them literally out in the cold. Her daughters were devastated to learn that these two were goners. There were tears. My friend took the cold eggs back into the house, in her armpits (yes) and one hatched last night. Today the other egg is just across the office, cheeping and chirping.

I have never heard an intact egg cheep cheep cheep! It's so cool!

I'm going to try to capture a few seconds of video / audio.

Chicks in eggs are durable. A hen will let individual eggs cool to slow development. This allows her to align the hatching of eggs of different ages. I've had hens hatch like half their eggs and abandon the rest, only to have another hen hop on for a quick hatch out. It's super cool.

You've probably seen pictures of Japan outside the cities, where not much land is wasted and it's pretty neat and tidy.
This is a problem for the birds because they need twigs, weeds, and tree litter to build nests.
Some of the big birds are using coat hangers. Now you know if the Japs are cleaning up twigs they sure aren't
throwing coat hangers around, but they do put clothing on hangars to air out on the porch.
The birds, sometimes in pairs, will pull any cloth items off the hanger to steal it. Probably take a pair of birds to bend it.

They are called crows ( a current hot topic) and you can see many of those nests here.
