Six per hen making 36 eggs.

Here's another one:

I think you miss-typed your question. You said, "How many eggs and six hens lay in six days?" What does this mean" Do you mean "Can" instead of "And?"

Anyway, six hens that lay one egg per day can lay six eggs.

The answer to Ctbarnes riddle is a man (human) because at birth it crawls on 4 legs (2 hands, two knees). Throughout his youth and adulthood, he walks using two legs. Then when he is old, he uses a cane to walk, therefore having three legs. I have heard that one a lot.

Aaron is correct on the other riddle as well... 6 hens will lay 24 eggs in 6 days at the given rate.

Probably I am bored with the chicken riddle. But I admit that I don't understand it.

And I care so little I created a useless aside.
