On a farm there lived many animals and birds. One day, little Red hen found a grain of wheat in the farmyard. She asked the other birds, “Who wants to plant this wheat?” The duck and the goose were lazy and quickly refused to do any work. So, the little Red hen planted the grain of wheat. When the wheat was ripe, the little Red hen again asked the other birds, “Who will take the wheat to the mill?” The duck and the goose again ignored the little Red hen and continued playing. When it was time to make bread with the flour, the little Red hen did the work all by herself. At last it was time to eat the bread. The duck and the goose stood close thinking that they too would get a share. But the Red hen said, “I will eat the bread alone because only I worked for it.” She called her chicks and they all had a feast.
