Morning Land is actually a form of purgatory.All the eggs in morning land are actually souls, needing to be escorted through Morning Land (a.k.a. purgatory), so they can be reincarnated (hatched), with the fruit acting as purification for the soul's sins. Billy and his friends are actually spirits tasked with guiding them safely through to be reincarnated. In order for the process to work properly though, the land has to be initially purified (in the form of bringing morning). When a soul is sucessfully 'reborn', as a thanks for guding it, it leaves behind a gift in the form of something to help, with the larger gifts (like animals and mounts) coming from those who have had to spend longer being guided/having their sins absolved. As for the chicks and chickens, they're a mix of souls who've stayed in order to help guide others to be reborn, and those who need more time before they can pass on, starting off as chickens, then regressing into chicks, and when they are ready to go - eggs. The Egg Spirits on the other hand, are souls who've dedicated their existence to caring for the Giant Egg, which acts as a local deity/ruler of Morning Land. As for the crows, they are forms of temptation trying to hinder the soul's development, to stop is sucessfully passing through.
Humans are aware of Morning Land's existence.It seems that in the world of Billy Hatcher (aka: the Human World) people are aware that there's a world called Morning Land, or at least it they know that the chickens have something to do with the sun rising everyday and that the crows are evil creatures. Why? if you look closely in the opening cutscene you can see that thare are a lot of items relating to chickens such as
Something big happened 100 years ago.In the game, Menie-Funie and some elders will give away hints that something happened 100 years ago, for example:
The Legendary Rooster Suit is actually NOT that legendary.Menie-Funie describes it as the LEGENDARY Rooster suit, meaning that there must be only one of it. Thou Rolly, Bantam and Chick are wearing rooster suits too, so what's the point of being so legendary?
Menie-Funie is not a God.He calls himself the one who watches over Morning Land, in Sonic & Sega all-stars racing he's refered as "Chicken King" and honestly, for being a God Menie doesn't seem to have a lot of knowledge about his own world, most of his hints are just speculations like "I've heard that there's an emblem somewhere in this place" so...either Menie is actually a king somehow watching over the heavens or he's just a very clueless God.
Morning Land is more complicated than it seems.
Crows are actual soldiers with specified ranks.Crows come in different categories which seem to divided in 3: 3rd,2nd and first rank crows
Dark Corvo is actually a girl.ok this may be a bit exagerated but its quite confusing to figure if Corvo is actually a dude or a dudette, why?
Corvo is not dead.This one is pretty famous and the reason of why some think that if there's a sequel, Dark Corvo will be the main antagonist, in all crows boss fights, after the boss' defeat it dissipates into a group of small crows. However Corvo didn't dissipated, he just entered into a hole that appeared in the ground and faded away, so the answers may be...
Raven is not dead.We all saw how Billy defeated Raven by crushing his heart using an egg. But... didn't Allani said that Raven is a being that rebirths every 100 years, meaning that even if he dies, he'll come back? or maybe crushing his heart will broke the rebirth cycle forever?
Rainbow Gate is not the only way to Giant Palace.The Rainbow Gate is supposed to be the only path to that place so, how did the crows got there before Billy? flying? then what's the point of the rainbow gate exactly? Maybe there's an alternate path that the chickens are unaware of.
The Giant Egg is something completely different.Well, we know its an egg...and honestly not THAT giant (it looks bigger in the map than in the actual stage) and that it holds great power and that it can grant any wish, but that's about it. It was never explained what's the real purpose of it, and why does something like that exist knowing that it can fall into the wrong hands?
Billy is an orphan.Even when running out from his house, there are no hints of his parents being around, he must be taking care of himself.
