The Magic Hen

The Magic Hen


One day, a poor man came up to a farmer and bought a sack of rice in exchange for a hen. The farmer’s wife was angry when she heard that her husband had parted with a whole sack of rice for an ordinary hen.

But the next morning, the farmer’s wife found a golden egg at the place where the hen had roosted during the night. The magic hen laid one golden egg everyday. This practice went on for several weeks. Soon the farmer became the richest man in the village.

But the farmer’s wife, who was a greedy woman, was not satisfied. One day, when the farmer was not at home, she brought a big knife, and cut the hen’s belly in the hope of getting all the golden eggs at once. To her dismay, she found that there was not even a single egg inside the hen! And there never would be any more eggs because the foolish, greedy woman had killed the magic hen.
