The Araucanian people of Chile have a vampire creature in their mythology.
The Colo-Colo monster is born from a cockerel egg.
It preys on sleeping people hovering over the body and sucking their saliva draining from their body.
The victim wakes with a high fever and dies soon after.

That is similar to one of the legends I had to research. In one legend the Cockatrice is born from a cockerel egg. I think it had to be incubated by a toad, but I don’t exactly remember. Hope everything is returning to normal at your place.
What do you get when you sit a toad on a cockerel egg?
Answer: I’m not sure but The Cock of the South is a great read. I highly recommend it and it has a cockatrice.
Sorry, I haven’t slept well for a while. I think we might finally be getting back to a normal state of crazy.
Crazy is good. Stories are born there.
True, if only the story mommies had time to birth them.
Man do I understand that. I took a week off to write and wound up busy on everything else.
I think I’m going to have to search for a magical genie and ask for time to be paused. A few weeks should get me caught up. I’ll keep you writing too. 😉
Darn, Boyack beat me to it. I was going to mention the cockatrice-egg connection.
I was thinking that too when I wrote this post 😀
Don’t know why, but I just have the feeling I may have met him….
I think you have…. but if he asks I didn’t tell you that.
