Found an old uncompleted crossword. Two answers I just don't get the parsing of.
1) Miscievous child cuts leg off its first unit (6) The answer is PASCAL. I get it is an SI unit and a rascal is a mischievous child, but....???
2) Mass of eggs, but not the first year in bird sanctuary (6) The answer is AVIARY. which is an enclosure for birds obviously (but hardly a bird sanctuary), and I can't make any sense of the rest. TIA.
