Storyline

Oliver discovers that one of his chickens is laying square eggs, but he can't find out which one it is. In addition, he finds out that he has a toaster that only works when you say the word "five". When he mentions this to the boys at Drucker's, they sympathize with him for having an old model--they have new models that only work when you say "eight". Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

This is one of the best examples of "Green Acres" off the wall sense of humor. Oliver is amazed when one of his chickens starts laying square eggs. However, he is unable to determine which of the chickens is turning out these rarities. In the meantime, he has to deal with a toaster that makes toast when you say the number "five" (a hilarious "B" story).

When Oliver sells all the chickens to a man who has been trying to develop chickens that lay square eggs, Lisa is depressed. She misses all her chicken friends. But they are soon returned when the chickens don't lay square eggs for the new owner. Lisa isn't surprised. After all, she says "There's a lot of things you do for friends that you wouldn't do for strangers".
