Chickens are, in the scope of barnyard birds, pretty awesome. Not only are they unbearably cute as chicks, but they feed and nourish us, keep us company and keep our yards and farms reasonably free of pests. In the case of the rooster, they also wake us up in the morning, though sometimes way too early to suit our tastes.
Red hens are pretty spiffy. Well, they’re not really any different than other hens, but there’s this one story we remember about a particular little red hen. There was this industrious little red hen who asked a dog, cat and duck who lived nearby for help planting her wheat. They said no! Because they were lazy bums. Next, she asked for their help in harvesting it and taking it to the mill. They of course all said ‘no’. So she did all that. Then she asked the three good-for-nothings if they wanted to help her bake the bread she was going to make with the flour she got from the mill. Still they refused. So she next offered the bread to the layabouts. They all jumped at the chance, because mooches always want what they didn’t work for. But little red hen is nothing is not sly. She goes, “Aha suckers! You wouldn’t help me when I asked for it, so you don’t deserve my bread! Hah!” And she ate it all up.
Folkmanis calls to mind the ingenuity and craftiness of the little red hen with their own galnita roja (little red hen). She’s 15 inches long, and comes to life in your hand. What could be more fun than that for a lover of chickens?
