One day, the farmer’s wife told him, “Wouldn’t it be good if we could have some eggs from time to time? I wish we had a goose to lay us eggs daily! ” The farmer did not have much cash to buy a goose. So , he collected some veggies and set off to the marketplace to sell all of them and perhaps get a goose in exchange.
He returned to the farm later in the day, holding a goose. His wife was pleased and couldn’t sleep through the night, looking forward to the goose to lay its first egg.
Morning came and the farmer visited the barn to find the egg. And what did he find? A golden eggs He could an egg of gold’

Soon, a time came when the farmer and his wife just simply could not wait for a single egg each day. They desired all the eggs right away.
“This goose should have lots of golden eggs inside itself, ” said the wife to the farmer, “Why don’t we just take them out all at one time? “
