White Leghorn Hens
Meet Hatty and Hetty the White Leghorn Hens.
Photographs of Hatty
Hatty running. Laying in the straw. Eating barley.
Hiding in the hedgerow. Egg sitting. Up a tree!
Laying an egg! The egg.
Hatty laid her first egg of this year on Friday 19th January.
Hatty has laid 101 eggs in 2007.
Hatty likes to rule the roost and the greenhouse! Here she is helping me with the planting in the greenhouse or should I say overseeing the planting.
Hatty the hen is my White Leghorn chicken. She is about 3 years old and she was given to me by one of our kind neighbours along with Hetty in 2004. Unfortunately Hetty is no longer with us but Hatty has befriended the flock of guinea fowl and when she isn’t finding somewhere new to lay her white eggs, she can be seen running around the farm yard with Charlie, Camilla and Diana the guinea fowl.
Here is a video clip of Hatty pecking her way across the garden.
At a family gathering recently, my niece thrust a piece of paper in my hand saying that this was Hatty the hen. Not only has this lovely hen touched my heart but that of my niece too. Here is the lovely picture my niece drew. I love this drawing.
Now having looked at the photographs and video clip of Hatty, I challenge you to have a go at drawing Hatty the hen. I would love to see your pictures so take a photo of your drawing or scan it into your computer and email the Hatty portrait over to me with your name and age, if a child has drawn the picture. Here is my attempt!
