We all like a good riddle so lets see if anyone can get this one

You are a trader. Like a fir trader or just trade things period.

So one day you have to trade a fox, a bird, and some bird seeds.

You are walking in the woods and you come to a river.

In the river is a boat for you to use but you are only allowed to take over one item at a time.

Here is the problem. You can't leave the bird alone with the bird seed becasue the bird will eat it. And you can't leave the fox alone wkith the bird because the fox will eat the bird.

You have to get to the other side so what do you do?

Can anyone get this

Take the bird first, come back and get the seed. take the seed across, leave the seed but bring the bird back across. Leave the bird and take the fox across then come back and get the bird again.

I have to agree with the PP's actually.

But...

I asked my hubby about this and this is what he said:

Kill and skin the fox.  Kill the bird and eat it for lunch.  Take fox skin and birdseed across the river to trade... 

Yeah, I know you said only one thing, but he's a guy and he doesn't listen very well, lol.
