Storyline

Donald reads in his newspaper that eggs are really going up in value and the price is skyrocketing. Donald realizes that if he had some eggs, he would be quite the wealthy duck so he breaks into a nearby hen-house and collects as many eggs as possible putting them all in a huge basket. Unfortunately, a rooster standing guard makes his presence known and ejects Donald. The inventive duck is able to get back in disguised as a female chicken who the rooster falls for and dances with. Unfortunately, with the rubber glove comb constantly coming loose and a caterpillar falling down the back of his suit, he is ever at the risk of being discovered.

The first duck to be masquerading in the guise of a chicken
26 January 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Clarence Nash & Florence Gill had never sounded SO good like in this Donald Duck cartoon. In this cartoon, Donald has read in the paper that the price of eggs sky-rocket to 85 cents a dozen; Sure it might not much today, but I it must have been a lot back then. So he decide to harvest eggs from the hen house for profit; But not when a protective rooster's on watch; So he try disguising himself as a hen. I love this cartoon, it is one of my favorite Donald shorts from 1941. I love it when Donald flips the record from "Lazy Daze" music to "Hot Stuff" jitter-bug music to speed up production (with eggs 85 cents); And also when he first encounters the rooster :

"Oh Boy!" *zips* "Oh No!"

It is funny to see Donald as a hen, and it's amazing that Ducky Nash could cluck like a chicken in his Donald voice; Donald is the first duck to be masquerading in the guise of a chicken, because it was also done in a Daffy Duck cartoon "You were never Duckier" but in a different situtation.
