The Woman And The Fat Hen

Ngebray.com,- An old woman kept a hen which, without fail, laid one egg every morning. The eggs were of the highest quality and the old woman was able to sell them for a very good price. “If only my hen would lay two eggs a day,” she thought, “My income would be doubled!” So, she began feeding her hen twice as much corn each day. Unfortunately all this extra food made the hen grow so fat and contented that it became lazy and gave up laying eggs altogether!

MORAL : “However carefully the future is worked out, things may not go as planned.
