Hen is one of Little Bear's friends. She is one of the two tetartagonists of Little Bear, one of the four deuteragonists of Little Bear and a supporting character in The Little Bear Movie. She is voiced by Elizabeth Hanna.
Her first appearance on the television series was in the episode "Hide and Seek".
Hen is a lively and energetic but somewhat of a feisty and fussy chicken with an English accent as well. She is sophisticated and mature, and likes things to be organized, although her several nieces and nephews often create chaos in her spotless house. Even though Hen is very refined, at times she joins in on the fun and adventures with the rest of the crew.
Her home is a large chicken coop that she keeps clean at all times. She technically lives with Little Bear at his house just because she's usually part of his family even though she's just a friend.
Hen has been shown to have a crush on Owl. In the episode "The Kiss" Mr. Skunk, Duck and Cat are playing "kissing tag" so Cat kisses Owl on the side of his face making him "it" when Hen walks by Owl he kisses Hen on the side of her face and Hen says, "'I didn't know you cared'", whereupon Owl says, "'I don't! I mean...I do!'" leaving us to wonder if there are feelings between them.
