Narrator: Once upon a time there was a farmer who was very poor.  One day he was plowing the field and thought.

Farmer: I work too much… and all for nothing!  I am tired of coming here every day and just for a few cents.  I really have bad luck!

Narrator: Suddenly an elf appeared.

Farmer: Oh my!

Elf: Don’t be afraid.

Farmer: Who are you?

Elf: I have heard what you said, today your luck will change.  Take this hen.

Farmer: Thank you, I am so hungry!  I will cook it as soon as I get home.

Elf: No!  This is a very special hen.

Farmer: What makes it so special? …  Does it talk?

Elf: No!  Listen to me!  This hen is so wonderful that every day it lays a golden egg.

Farmer: A golden egg?

Narrator: The elf didn’t answer, and he just disappeared.

Farmer: I hope it’s true.  I will go home right away.

Narrator: The farmer went home and immediately put the hen in a cage.  Next day, as soon as he woke up, he went to the chicken house to see if the hen laid the golden egg.

Farmer: Oh… it is true!  It’s an egg of solid gold!

Narrator: He took the egg, went to town and tried to sell it.  He stood in the middle of the street and shouted.

Farmer: Golden egg for sale!  Golden egg for sale!

Narrator: Soon a crowd gathered around him amazed at the golden egg.

Woman 1: How much do you want?

Woman 2: Is it really a golden egg?

Farmer: Sure, it is!

Man 1: I want it!

Man 2: No, it’s mine!

Man 3:I’ll buy it!  Sell it to me!

Farmer: It’s your then!… And don’t worry… I will bring another one tomorrow.  There are enough for everybody!

Narrator: The farmer sold the egg.  Next day when he woke up he went straight to see if there was another golden egg.

Farmer: Good… another golden egg!  I’ll sell it right away.

Narrator: And once again he went to town and sold the egg.  After that day, every day, the hen gave him a beautiful golden egg.

Farmer: I am getting richer and richer every day.  I am the richest man in town!  I have everything a man could want… but… I wonder how I could get more eggs from my hen…

Narrator: As the farmer grew richer, he also became greedy and stingy.

Farmer: I want to have more and more money!  I am tired of waiting every day just for one  golden egg.

Narrator: And he thought and thought…

Farmer: I am going to kill the hen and I’ll find the gold mine she has inside.   I will have all her treasure at once!

Narrator: So he cut her open and found nothing at all.

Farmer: This can’t be!  Where’s the gold mine?  Where’s her treasure? Now I don’t have the hen and its golden eggs!
