Today’s riddle is a hard one, but I liked it so much I wanted to share both the riddle and the answer.
Riddle: Six set and seven sprung, out of the dead the living come.
Answer: A chicken (a small one I guess) made a nest in an animal skull. She hatched out six baby chicks. She and the chicks made seven. When they left the skull – out of the dead the living come.
Wayde Powell shared the riddle with me. He said he grandmother used to say it to him.
The last riddle I shared was from James Still:
“I have teeth yet can’t eat; Can’t crunch corn or bread of wheat, Still I’ll fix you fairly neat.”
Lots of folk guessed the answer: a comb.
