This is a really old one..


House A owns a cockerel. However, it leaps over the fence and lays its eggs in the garden of House B. Now, House B has some eggs that came from House A's cockerel. So, who keeps the eggs?

It's a trick question. Kind of like the old "Where do they bury the survivors?" thing. It isn't meant to be answered properly.

I agree with Noct. The OP clearly states that the cockerel lays eggs. Whether it can by definition or not is irrelevant to the answer which is that the neighbors will have to make an agreement (friendly or formal) and follow whatever they decide. Maybe it's a hermaphrodite? :o

Sorry . But I do not agree . Before coming to the question one has to look at the logic.If the logic fails , then there is no question of a question being raised. In this OP the question is merely a distraction and distractions are part and parcel of any puzzle. :mellow:

Re-phrase for clarity:

House A owns a cockerel. If it were to leap over the fence and lay eggs in House B's garden, who would keep the eggs?


Make any more sense?
