The Chicken

Did you hear about the farmer who went out to the chicken coop to collect eggs one morning and found a dime, instead of an egg, under his prize hen.

Thinking someone was pulling a joke on him, he said nothing and shoved the dime in his pocket.

The next morning, there were two nickels and a dime under the same hen.

Again he said nothing and pocketed the coins.

This went on for days and days - each day there were more coins than the day before. Soon it was quarters, dimes and nickels!

Unable to believe what was happening, he took the hen to the chicken gynecologist to see what was going on.

With her little legs up in the stirrups, the doctor examined the hen and turned to the farmer, saying............

"There's nothing wrong with her......she's just going through the change!"
