#013 hazel the hen


"Hazel is a frantically industrious red hen. Long since done asking for help from anyone, she’s enrolled in every night class going in order to learn to do, well, almost anything. Forget finding someone to assist you in removing some wallpaper, this independent and highly practical hen can change tyres, lay brick walls and has even baked and frosted a five-tier wedding cake. And not only that, she does the lot without the assistance of machines; seriously, this hen won’t eve take help from her plug-in whisk! After she’s sewn her corn, harvested and made the flour, the pleasure is in eating a mouthful of her 100 percent fabulous bread." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
