Mother hen is watching over her chicks, giving them warmth. She and her chicks are illustrated by Loes Botman in pastels and almost look as if they’ve been plucked straight from the nest.
What a wonderful card for a springtime, Easter or farm unit theme, nature or seasonal table, or correspondence to send warmth to others, such as loved ones and friends.
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know chickens have over 30 different vocalizations and each one means something different. They make a purring noise when they are content and mother hens will purr and “talk” to their babies in the eggs? The unhatched chicks will respond with high pitched peeps that the mother can hear.
