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 bird keeps birds
4 October 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

As I can't help nitpicking I do find it a little odd that Donald Duck, who is himself a bird, keeps loads of hens. In this cartoon he learns of the skyrocketing price of eggs (there must be a shortage of hens then) and rushes out to the barn to prompt them into laying loads of them with some upbeat music.

But the barn Rooster has other ideas and insists that the eggs stay put. Why would Donald allow the Rooster to push him around so much? And why would the Rooster really care what Donald does with the eggs? It's not like he's going to be doing much with them himself. Despite these moans, the cartoon is very funny and Donald's irritable, persistent personality mixes well with the hijinks.
