The Woman and Her Hen (Greek Folk Tale)

Folk Tales, Greek Folk Tales4302


A Thrifty Woman kept a Hen that could be depended on to lay an egg every morning. The watchful Woman thought within herself, “If I were to double my Hen”s allowance of barley, she would lay twice a day.”

So she tried her plan, and the Hen became so fat and sleek that she left off laying at all.

Thrift sometimes overreaches, and figures are not always facts.
