Sally Wright | 1 comments This is a story about a young hen and her life from runt and social outcast within the flock to her eventual triumph as foster mother of the young rooster who comes to the "throne" when the old rooster dies. The humble, kind hearted hen is a contrast with some of her vain & silly sisters and is a warm and conscientious brooder and chick raiser. The author, I think, is the person raising the chickens and the tone of the story is naturalistic and realistic. It seems to be set in the English countryside
