Hickety Pickety

Hickety Pickety is a funny nursery rhyme about a black hen who lays eggs for gentlemen.

Did you know that black hens actually exist? Many people believe that all hens are white (or brown). But black hens are not unusual at all! Black and brown hens lay brown eggs and white hens lay white eggs. Tell this to the children next time you are eating eggs!

By the way: Do you like white or brown eggs best? A secret from us to you: they are exactly the same. It is not possible to taste any difference. Just the color is different! :)


Hickety Pickety - Lyrics

Hickety pickety, my black hen
She lay's eggs for gentlemen
Sometimes nine, sometimes ten
Hickety pickety, my black hen.

Alternative text:

Hickety pickety, my black hens
They lay eggs for all my friends
All my friends come every day
To buy the eggs my hens can lay.
