The Hen with the silver eggs

The Hen with the silver eggs:

One day, in an Arabian city, a woman went to the market and bought a beautiful hen.

You can imagine her surprise, later when the hen laid a silver egg. If the hen could only be persuaded to lay more than one egg each day, the woman was sure she would never have to work again.

Therefore, the woman decided that the hen must eat more, so that it could lay more eggs.

But the only result was that the hen died of indigestion and did not lay any more eggs at all.
