The Death of the Little Hen - A Brothers Grimm Folktale


Season: 1 Episode: 480
Published on

Once upon a time the little hen went with the little cock to the nut-hill, and they agreed together that whichsoever of them found a kernel of a nut should share it with the other. Then the hen found a large, large nut, but said nothing about it, intending to eat the kernel herself. The kernel, however, was so large that she could not swallow it, and it remained sticking in her throat, so that she was alarmed lest she should be choked.

Then she cried, “Cock, I entreat thee to run as fast thou canst, and fetch me some water, or I shall choke.”
