לז"נ האי גברא רבה איש החסד והמעש

Riddle from the תרומת הדשן

A chicken jumped on the apple tree and apples fell off the tree.  You may not eat the apples. A few minutes later the 
chicken laid an egg. 

Now you may eat the apples?

  1. A person made a neder not to have Hanaah from any male chicken (rooster). When the chicken jumped on the tree it was a safeik whether it was male or female. Now that it has laid an egg we know it's gender, we may eat the apples.
