Alex, Justin, and Max promise a magic-free evening so Theresa can invite her brother Ernesto (who does not know about the Russo’s magical powers) for a birthday dinner. The promise is broken as soon as Alex discovers a shelf full of magical birthday presents given to them from Uncle Kelbo. A magical chicken, who lays eggs about the future, escapes as Max lets it free from its cage. Chaos follows as they try to hide magic away from Uncle Ernesto.
Alex proves that she loves her mom more than magic by throwing away the egg the FuChicken had layed, which would tell who would win the wizard competition.
