Henny Penny, the Pet of the Day
Name: Henny Penny
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Barred Rock Chicken
Home: Marysville, Washington, USA
   Henny Penny is the barred rock chicken in the middle. Great layer of brown eggs. She sings like an opera diva in Marysville, Wa. Henny Penny is a year old now, but this picture taken when she was seven months old. She lives with three Rhode Island Red hens of the same age. Henny Penny is the leader, out to scout for food and sound the alarm when a cat is in the yard. She is quite the opera diva, announcing the arrival of a new egg, even when the other hens are laying. She loves McDonald's french fries and earthworms, not necessarily together. She is calm and seems to enjoy being petted and chatters at you when you gather the eggs. Henny Penny is just simply the best barnyard chicken there is.
