This timeless fable relates the story of three chickens hen-napped by two bad (and not very clever) foxes. With a bit of luck and a lot of pluck, these not-so-chicken chickens devise a plan to escape by tricking the foxes into believing that one of them has laid a golden egg. The two greedy foxes fight over the possession of the egg, leaving the clever chickens free to make their escape.
