Plot Summary

  • Bills, bills, bills! Ricky is on a rant about how, indeed, living in Connecticut is very expensive. Lucy suggests that they are not being resourceful and that many of their neighbors run small businesses to help with the high cost of living. Lucy's idea is to buy some chickens and sell fresh eggs. The Ricardos run the idea by the Mertzes during a visit and Fred thinks it's a great plan. Fred was raised on a farm, so when the Ricardos advertise for a hired hand, the Mertzes apply and, of course, get the job. Not only are they partners in business, but neighbors yet again - the Mertzes have a manager for their NYC apartment building. In the meantime, Betty Ramsey tells Lucy that her editor friends at House and Garden Magazine would be interested in featuring her home. Lucy is thrilled, but is sidetracked when she and Ethel buy 500 baby chicks before Fred is finished working on the chicken coop. Things run amok when the chicks are let loose in the house, and amid the chaos, Betty arrives with her magazine friends. Lucy is stunned and must content herself that her home has a better chance of appearing in the next issue of 'The Chicken Breeders' Gazette.'
