The Woman and Her Hen

A WOMAN possessed a Hen that gave her an egg every day. She often pondered how she might obtain two eggs daily instead of one, and at last, to gain her purpose, determined to give the Hen a double allowance of barley. From that day the Hen became fat and sleek, and failed to lay another egg. The woman, seeing the pattern, fed the Hen nothing at all. The Hen wasted away and eventually laid an egg that looked much like a large white raisin. When the Woman pulled it apart a dark red slime ran out revealing a tiny human skull.
