After about a week or two of sitting on her egg, Mayzie persuaded Horton to sit on her egg while she flew to Palm Beach. She lied and decided to never go back until Horton was done. When Horton was sold to the circus, it went to Palm Beach and Mayzie saw the show, bumping into Horton in the process. When the egg it's about to hatch, she demand the egg back without offering Horton a reward. The bird hatches and is a cross between Mayzie and Horton. Horton is rewarded for his hard work by keeping the "elephant bird" and Mayzie is punished for her laziness by getting nothing.
