FIRST: A hen lays an egg in a day and a half, so seven hens lay seven eggs in a day and a half, so seven hens lay 49 eggs in a week and a half.

SECOND: A hen (duck?) lays an egg in a day and three quarters, so seven hens/ducks lay seven eggs in a day and three quarters, so seven hens/ducks lay 28 eggs in a week.
