This egg was evidently handled with care upon delivery, as its fragile white shell is both intact and absent of any unsightly blemishes. It has been outfitted with specially-tailored clothing to ensure its protection while incubating, for neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night will stay this egg from hatching.
The Postork is a fully-domesticated species of bird that has been delivering messages and packages across the island for centuries. A first-class messenger, it was carefully crafted by way of selective breeding to boast an impressive flight speed averaging eighty kilometers per hour, a carrying-capacity of twice its own weight, and an enduring stamina allowing for many hours of continuous flight.
Employed in the hundreds by the Ark City Postal Service, Postorks are routinely seen flying overhead far and wide to deliver mail. The advent of the Internet initially caused concern for the Postorks' future, as e-mail and instant messaging quickly eclipsed the need to send traditional letters through the postal service, but the ever-growing popularity of online shopping is proving to be reliable job security.
