Recipe to obtain the hen that lays golden eggs
Procure a black hen and, at midnight, go to a place in the woods called “Cross of…” Make a hole in the earth and begin the invocation. Kill the black hen on top of the hole, taking care that all the blood runs into it and cover the hole. Go back to your home without looking back under any circumstances. That same night, the Devil will give you another black hen which will be the hen that lays golden eggs.
