What did the hen say after she laid 100 eggs?
I am eggs hausted :-).

It takes a hen 24-26 hours to lay an egg. A chicken takes 21 days to hatch. Special breed hens lay about 300 eggs in a year. They incubate their eggs and raise young ones. A mother hen turns her egg approximately 50 times in a day. This is so the yolk does not stick to the shell. Hen takes 24-26 hours to lay an egg.
Lets draw a hen. It is a few more steps, but again as I have said earlier they are just few more alphabets.

  • Start  with upside down J. You can think of it as a candy cane or upside down U joined with L
  • Write another small L at the free end of bigger L.
  • To make face write a small reverse C and then a big C for chest. Write another C to start making wing.
  •  My C was not big enough in the earlier figure. Make sure you write a big enough C.
  • Write 11 for feet, and M for beaks. Put dots for eye.
  • Make plumage with C, joined with three more Cs.
  • Join L and C of side wing with M to finish the side wing.
  • Write a series of crooked Vs to join the tip of C of plumage to the tip of 1 of second foot.
  • Write upside down U between feet and join them with I.
  • Write three upside down Us together for crown.
  • Write two flat Os more like oval for eggs.
Cook a Doodle do !!

Why do hens lay eggs?
Because if they dropped them they would break. :-).
