Hmm this would be tedious but I would take the hen over and then go back get the fox, take the hen back to the first bank, take the rice over to the 2nd back with the fox, go back to the first bank and bring over the hen a second time.

here's how i know to do it; on the first trip, the farmer will take the hen with him across first, then on the seconnd trip the farmer will take the fox with him across the river and deposit it there taking with him the hen when going back for the rice, on the third trip the farmer will get the rice and leave the hen and cross it to the other side with the fox. on the final journey the farmer will be going for the hen. greetings. : )

The Farmer and the Hen first crosses the river. The Farmer comes back alone. The Farmer takes the Rice Bage across the river. He comes back with the Hen. The Farmer takes the Fox across the river. He comes back alone. Finally the Farmer crosses the river with the rice bag. Now everyone has happily crossed the river.
