CBeebies Bedtime Story.

0:16:020:16:06

Wow, that's incredible.

0:16:070:16:09

I can't believe that!

0:16:090:16:11

Oh, hello. I'm Warwick.

0:16:110:16:13

I was just reading this story in the moospaper. It's quite incredible.

0:16:130:16:17

The cows and chickens can't believe it. Neither can I.

0:16:170:16:21

In fact, why don't I tell you the story

0:16:210:16:24

and you can decide for yourselves.

0:16:240:16:26

The story is by Andy Cutbill and Russell Ayto,

0:16:260:16:29

and is called The Cow That Laid An Egg.

0:16:290:16:32

Marjorie the cow felt down in the dumps.

0:16:320:16:35

"What's wrong, Marj?" clucked the chickens.

0:16:350:16:40

"I don't feel special," said Marjorie.

0:16:400:16:43

"I can't ride bicycles and do handstands, like the other cows.

0:16:430:16:47

"I just feel so ordinary."

0:16:470:16:50

That night, the chickens hatched a cunning plan.

0:16:500:16:54

"Cluck, cluck, cluck", they whispered.

0:16:540:16:58

In the morning, there was an almighty commotion in the barnyard.

0:16:580:17:02

"I've laid an egg!" shrieked Marjorie.

0:17:020:17:06

All the other cows were astonished.

0:17:060:17:08

None of them had ever laid an egg before.

0:17:080:17:11

Even the farmer came running.

0:17:110:17:13

"Oh, my goodness!" he cried.

0:17:130:17:16

"Marjorie's laid an egg!"

0:17:160:17:18

The farmer's wife called the newspaper.

0:17:180:17:21

People came from far and wide.

0:17:210:17:23

"We're extremely proud of Marjorie," announced the farmer to the crowd.

0:17:230:17:28

Marjorie felt much more special now,

0:17:280:17:31

and the chickens were as pleased as punch too.

0:17:310:17:34

But the other cows weren't so happy.

0:17:340:17:38

Bicycle riding and handstands feel rather ordinary now.

0:17:390:17:43

Something funny is going on.

0:17:430:17:46

Cows don't lay eggs. Chickens lay eggs!

0:17:460:17:51

"We don't think you laid that egg," a cow said to Marjorie.

0:17:510:17:55

"We think the crafty chickens did it."

0:17:550:17:58

Marjorie felt shocked.

0:17:580:18:00

"Prove it!" said the chickens.

0:18:010:18:04

So they all waited for the egg to hatch.

0:18:040:18:07

Day after day they watched

0:18:070:18:09

as Marjorie sat on the egg to keep it warm, but nothing happened.

0:18:090:18:14

Until suddenly, one morning they heard a noise.

0:18:140:18:18

Tap, tap, tap.

0:18:180:18:21

"Oh, here it comes," shouted one of the cows.

0:18:210:18:24

As Marjorie stood up, "tap, tap, tap".

0:18:240:18:28

The egg cracked open and out hopped a small, brown feathery bundle.

0:18:280:18:36

"Oh, there!" said one of the cows, nodding. "A chicken!"

0:18:360:18:41

Suddenly, the tiny creature looked up at Marjorie.

0:18:420:18:46

"Moo!" it said loudly.

0:18:460:18:49

Marjorie smiled and held her baby tight.

0:18:490:18:52

"A cow," she said,

0:18:520:18:55

and she promptly named it Daisy.

0:18:550:18:59

And that story was called The Cow That Laid An Egg.

0:18:590:19:03

So what do you think?

0:19:030:19:05

Incredible!

0:19:050:19:07

I'm not surprised it made the front pages of the moospaper.

0:19:070:19:10

I wonder if there are any other amazing stories in here.

0:19:100:19:14

I'll just have a quick look.

0:19:140:19:16

Oh, and while I do, it's time for you to go to bed.

0:19:160:19:19

I'll see you soon for another story. Night-night.

0:19:190:19:23

Now, let's see, what's the big story on the centre pages?

0:19:230:19:27

Ah! Very interesting.
