Pan-roasted guinea hen , golden as the duck, is sparked by a sauce of tomato and lovage.
International cuisine uses the eggs of other birds, including ducks, geese, sparrows, quails and ostriches, but it is the hen that has been universally domesticated.
Displaying to the hen , the flame and gold crest features of the male are fully exposed.
Tragically it's beyond them to understand the instinct that will make even a domestic hen attack anyone coming between her and her chicks.
and I really like you too, hen
The hen usually lays two eggs, which she incubates for about 24 days until they hatch.
In early spring the turkey hen began to lay and when she had 12-15 eggs laid around St. Patrick's Day they began to hatch.
Usually the hen bird would fly off and work her way through the undergrowth in rather a flurry as one approached the nest, so this usually served as a warning to tread carefully.
Down below me in a shallow margin I watched a ragged hen salmon, bursting with eggs, preparing to spawn with a huge cock fish that had a kype like a fist and a tail like a shovel.
Well before the cock is over the nest, the hen rises and approaches him from below, turns over almost upside down and catches the prey as he drops it.
