Fable Friday: The Hen That Laid The Eggs of Gold

chicken_goldeneggAs it is Easter I fancied illustrating a fable that involved an egg. This is another fable from Jean de la Fountaine and I had thought it must be a version of the Golden Goose. However this fable involves the slaughter of a rather special hen and the moral ‘Those people always seeking more can learn from this dunce.’ So on that merry note, happy Easter!
