Once upon a time there was a family in which there were seven daughters. One day when the father went out to gather wood, he found seven wild duck eggs. He brought them home, but did not think of giving any to his children, intending to eat them himself, with his wife. In the evening the oldest daughter woke up, and asked her mother what she was cooking.
The mother said: “I am cooking wild duck eggs. I will give you one, but you must not let your sisters know.” And so she gave her one.
