Is It A Hen?

Husb and I visited a friend at her farm today and cut some bamboo canes for our allotment. It was gorgeous, sunny and warm; thirsty work. I grabbed the chance to get some sneaky digital shots of the fidgety chickens and had a bit of a scribble into my A5 hardbacked sketchbook with a grey graphite stick. I’ve had a bit of practice recently with our parrot visitor, Richard the Bird, so I was more familiar with the chicken – the round eye set in a faintly dinosaur-like head. I think it’s a hen but I’m not really sure how to tell.

    Probably only if it crows! One of my ‘girls’ is an Ancona, a breed with a very upright tail and she is often mistaken for a rooster. Not that that bothers her, she’s no 1 in the pecking order.
