Napoleon had contracted to sell 400 eggs per week. The hens rebelled, and Napoleon starved them until they conceded. Nine hens died.

When the hens heard this, they raised a terrible outcry. They had been warned earlier that this sacrifice might be necessary, but had not believed that it would really happen. They were just getting their clutches ready for the spring sitting, and they protested that to take the eggs away now was murder.
