Once a poor old widow while sitting idle, thought, `how good it would have been if my hen laid 2 eggs instead of one? I would eat one and sell the other one for money.'' With this thought in mind, she fed her hen with extra grains that day.
The next day, the hen laid two eggs. The woman was very happy. She sold one and ate the other. But gradually her greed increased. She began to feed her even more than before. The poor hen could not withstand the overfeeding. She felt sick and one day died. Now the old lady had nothing with her but repentance.
