AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Two farmers, Long Tom and Tubby, have long been friends but when Tubby begins to raise chickens (White Leghorns) the men begin to fight. Long Tom also begins to raise chickens and has much better luck getting eggs from his black Orphingtons. Tubby discovers that one of his hens is laying on Long Tom's land and in order to justify his being on Long Tom's property he obtains a mining licence. Long Tom follows suit and when he discovers gold he takes it to Tubby to share in his find and the men regain their friendship.
