I have some porcelain eggs, they are useful to keep your free range chickens from constantly finding new hiding places for their nests.

As a kid, we had one chicken that hid her eggs and created false nests just to fool us. She was a very smart bird. Her offspring ran "weirdly" and absurdly fast for a chicken.

Also if I am reading it right also a gas giant. But its moons might be interesting if only for the view.

Again, 580 C. You'd need asbestos-proofed rebels.

I meant on the moons. So you can use the gas giant to block superturbolasers for a critical period.

I would presume not, this is not the classic hot Jupiter the temperature is probably an artifact of the atmospheric composition rather than the insolation.
