I think on the C64 version you collect the eggs with fire+down. 

But I see another little thing: The wood is _collected_ too with that
method. To start a fire I think you needed to hit SPACE or one of the
function keys. Ok, just make it _not_ collectable on the VCS. So
fire+down either collects an egg or starts a fire.
