A hen is a female chicken. They are well known for their egg laying ability, and are often kept for the purpose of producing eggs, and as pets.
Hens are inquisitive and beautiful birds who love to scratch for worms and bathe in dust. They will communicate with their babies even before the chicks have hatched, just like humans do. Hens are loyal and friendly and cuddly birds. HollyWood often thinks of hens also being males. This is fake since all hens are females.
