hmmm... here's hoping they'd be good layers and the perfect way to start my backyard flock. I daydream about having chickens and a cute little coop in the backyard. Someday...

P.S. Got the pretty pretty fabric in the mail just the other day. Boy that was fast! I love it. Thanks!!!

Johanna said...

Three french hen would help me with my studies! :)

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I think I'd build a nice home for the Three French Hens in the yard so the grandchildren could enjoy watching them when they come over to visit!

Head Øv Metal said...

Three French hens sound like sweet pets. I'd visit them at the Gentle Barn.

I love the rabbit selvage!

Kati said...

As long as they lay eggs, they could prove very useful, otherwise they might end up as dinner.

diane said...

Three French hens...I love France, everything about it, so I would feel a little closer to France by having these hens in the yard. I have always dreamed of having chickens, so that we could have fresh eggs everyday, three would be perfect!

Reene@Nellie's Niceties said...

I'm sorry but I'd have to make coq au vin :)
Loving these fabrics!

Susanne said...

I would teach them English :)
Susanne

Barb said...

Can you eat french hens? Sounds like Christmas dinner to me!

Kathy said...

3 french hens - kind of like the saying teach them to fish - hens lay eggs and Easter is coming - I think a hen house would be good!

ElizabethB said...

I'm vegetarian myself but I'd be up for the challenge of learning to cook them Julia Child-style.

cherie godbey said...

I would let my kids burn some energy chasing them around the yard!

Debbie said...

This is the perfect opportunity for me to get a chicken coop.

Isisjem said...

Three French Hens? Well I'd use the eggs to make lots of lovely food. And name the hen's Mimi, Yvette and Chantal and keep them in my garden. I've always wanted to keep chickens!

Bailey said...

I'd eat them for dinner!

Wendy said...

Ooooh, I would love to have three French Hens in my garden and laying me fresh eggs every day!

Jeni said...

I'd build them a little coop! I'd love to have fresh eggs everyday! :)

mle said...

I tame them and keep them for pets, I have a soft spot for pet chickens.

Abby said...

I've been wanting some chickens, so I'd build a coop and keep them for eggs. We'd have frittata every Saturday, and I'd give away the extra eggs to Food Gatherers.

Deb said...

Like most people I think I'd use them for culinary purposes...

Stash Avalanche said...

Chickens are lovely but live ones would terrify the cat and get chased by the baby so I'm afraid they'd have to go in the oven!

SewLindaAnn said...

3 French Hens would have a lovely townhouse coop in my backyard and an opportunity to weed my garden of it's many Summer bugs. In exchange for this lovely life I'd hope for some eggs.

linda said...

have them instead of turkey !!

knottygnome said...

um, i'd eat them. well, i'd first freeze a couple because it'd take us forever to get through all 3.

Erica said...

Hmm, I would keep them around for their eggs. I do love freshly laid eggs. Plus my kids would love the hens.

Stevens Family said...

Keep two for eggs, eat the third.

Kim O. said...

Can't have backyard chickens in my area, so I'd have to give them to a shelter for Christmas dinner!

Jenny said...

we would chase them around the yard i think!

Flying Blind... said...

Oh they would definitely be dinner!

Hannah said...

I have friends who are into urban farming. I'd give them the hens in exchange for farm fresh eggs!

Nan said...

I would give them three French names (Marie-Therese, Louisette, and Clemence) and build a coop for a little urban farming.

Ciara said...

That sounds like my aunties! My three French hens sit in my mom's kitchen and chat all of the time.

Emelote of Calais (Erin Thornton) said...

Build them a coop and have egg all year long! Yum Yum!

diana said...

The man stands between life and death. The man thinks :)

Sequana said...

Three French hens could learn to play three French horns and march with the band for the French Foreign while they played Three Coins in the Fountain.

Sequana said...

I don't know what happened to the word "Legion".....*shrugs*

Sandra said...

I would hope to collect some great French eggs to make the best French toast.

Poppyprint said...

I'd get in as much practice as possible - we're hoping to visit France this summer and I'm a little rusty on the Francais! Oh, I might knit them up tiny hen-sized matching berets, too. Just for fun.

Lindsay said...

I think I would try and get some eggs out of these ones too...

Beth@seasonsofhome said...

I adore fresh eggs and have quite a little flock they could join but now I just really want to make a quilt with a block for every line of the song.

Brittany said...

I too would have to keep them ... the eggs would be tasty. hmmm ... I guess I could turn the balcony into a coop and tell the land lord they are cats. Cats and hens look alike ... right? ;-)

Lindsay Conner said...

I think Dexter knows what he would do with three French Hens...hehe. :)

Julie said...

Mmm I love an omelette made with fresh eggs:)

Katherine said...

They would become the start of my own little flock! Marie, Giselle and Gabrielle would be pampered and admired. ;o)

Debra said...

It depends on how hungry I am!

Marcia W. said...

My mother makes great baked hens and 3 would make a fantastic family meal! Yummm 3 French hens.

Bry said...

I have never had a hen but if they taste anything like quail I would roast them up!

VickiT said...

Ooh I am not sure about zoning ordinances but if I could, I'd make those French Hens a little house because I LOVE fresh eggs. They are so much better than what you can buy in the stores.

hello. said...

I'd start the farm I've always wanted...

Kelsey said...

Eggs + dinner? :P

~Michelle~ said...

Three french hens = backyard (or patio, in my case) chicken coop... I think that's legal in Los Angeles...

rachael said...

bunny selvage :) hmm... i'm not sure i could play three french horns all at once. i could try. oh, what's that? HENS. huh. that's totally different.

Carrie L said...

My husband is dying to have chickens, so we'd probably have to build a coop for them! Your giveaways have been so fun!

AngieSue said...

I'd love to raise some hens....I'd keep them in the backyard & scramble eggs for breakfast!

deserae said...

Maybe the french hens would be tasty???

memmens said...

I'd have to donate them to my chidren's school, they keep chickens and use the eggs in the school dinners!

Diane H said...

I would send them to my friend who lives in France so they would feel at home.

briscoeslochico said...

I would pour them cappuccinos and use their eggs with some creme fraiche for a yummy omelet.

Kelly said...

I would make the yummiest, buttery omelet ever!

Sunnybec said...

Well, as I live in France I guess I would have to give them a home here!! Not sure what my Jack Russell would make of them though!!! Linda

Michell said...

mmmmm Roast....sorry but that's what I thought of straight away

Suzanne said...

I'd hope my neighbors wouldn't notice and keep them in the backyard so we could enjoy fresh eggs!

Lisnaweary Quilts said...

I think 3 French Hens would be very posh, I think they would need their own castle..they would probably have little parasols..little pillbox hats...little bows around their necks and they would chatter all day.

Eve said...

I'd give them a nice place to live at my in-laws farm, free to do whatever the heck French hens like to do.

Angela said...

Three French Hens would definitely need to meet Three French Roosters. ;)

Michael said...

Sounds like pets to me!

Jennifer Ladd said...

Yum! They would go right to my Grandma's house ... she's the best cook in the family! :)

Thanks a lot!

Andrea said...

Three French hens would be welcome to join my neighbors lovely chicken coop so we can enjoy lovely omelets for brunch. I love this new fabric....hope hope hope to win!

Laurie T said...

I would give them to my daughter-in-law - she wants to decorate her kitchen with hens and roosters!!! LOL!

gill said...

Well obviously I would add them to the six I've already got and I'm sure they'd be very happy!!

Kathryn said...

I'd build a chicken coop and have fresh eggs every day.

tiffanie said...

annmarie said...

I'd collect French Eggs of course!!! Great giveaway - thanks for the chance to win.

Cherry Red Quilter said...

the three french hens could go and join the four calling birds on my sister's farm - she would love the extra eggs for her pavlovas

Heartsdesire said...

I would give the hens to my daughter. She lives on an island and is going to be building a hen house this spring so they can have fresh eggs. Three French hens would be a good start. Love the selvedge on your new fabric. So cute.

WandaFish said...

I was going to say I'd keep 2 for eggs and 1 for dinner, but I think my next door neighbour has 2 hens that live near my bedroom window so maybe I'll just keep the 3 to outdo the noise of hers! (childish? yes!)
drooling over this fabric, thanks for the chance to win :)

Katie said...

Cute fabric!

Hmm 3 French hens... I bet they'd produce some yummy eggs! I could have eggs to make breakfast with whenever I wanted and eggs to bake with whenever I wanted :) Thanks!

Bree said...

Do french hens taste yummy?
If not, eggs for breakfast!!

Jess said...

A chicken feast :)

tubakk said...

Ha-ha, I should hope they were good to speak French, so that they could help me. I'm studying French right now!

Knotenufthyme said...

Mmm.... 3 French Hens.... with a side order of French Fries please... !

Melissa said...

I think I would give them to a family who might benefit from having 3 French hens and all the French eggs they could stand. :)

blue.crab said...

I'd probably keep them for the eggs, but on the other hand, they probably are pretty tasty....

Lee said...

I would let the three french hens be free range. I would speak French to them and gather their eggs. Merci!

Lisa E said...

My daughters don't eat much chicken, so I think that I would keep them for their eggs. I've heard that fresh eggs are heavenly!

Laura said...

Stuffed, baked, with a glaze of jus d'orange :)

Thanks for the give aways!

Tong said...

My grandmother used to have a chicken coop in her yard when she was growing up, and she's told me stories of the hens laying eggs, so maybe that's I'd do with the 3 French hens. Thank you for the giveaway!

Ruby in the Dust said...

I'd get them to lay me some french eggs to make some french crepes with!

Anonymous said...

Three french hens- well, the first thing that came to mind was- I would sing to them. Don't ask me why I thought of that because I don't have a clue (and I don't sing all that well, haha!:) Love your fabrics and thanks for the chance to win!:)

Lori said...

I think it would be a hen dinner! Although I've never plucked a hen before.

annemarie said...

I think I would keep them for the eggs they would lay - nothing like fresh farm eggs.

Emskyrooney said...

I'd build them a little coop, get a rooster, and fry me up some yummy fresh eggs!

Anonymous said...

3 french hens...hmmmmm Im no vegetarian so I'd eat them..bwhahahahaha

Regan
rvanbib204@rogers.com

Rachelle said...

3 french hens would definitely go in the back yard with one wing clipped so we'd get lots of eggs!

Lisa Marie said...

I'd take photos of them and use the photos to inspire a quilt to remember the hens. Then I'd take them to a farmer to raise, as I couldn't really keep them where I live.

@pril said...

3 french hens..................determine how french hens are different than regular hens I guess. My answers to these Q's are stupid, I know.

nancym said...

My cats would really enjoy watching them, so thet'd be penned up in the yard for entertainment . Mangelnsm@aol.com

Ashley said...

I would con my hubby into building a nice coop on our property for them. I think they are very pretty plus I would love the free eggs!:)

Thanks for a chance to win!!

Diary of a Flutter.Kat said...

would french hens taste more yummy for Christmas lunch than Australian hens I wonder? I'd like to find out ;)

epban said...

I'd use the french hens' eggs to make French Toast on Christmas morning!

Aimee said...

I would keep them! I have always wanted chickens!! I had four in high school, Lucy and Ethel and Bert and Ernie :) Their names really suite their coloring too :) Lucy was red, Ethel white, Bert was a blondish color and Ernie was a more bronze color.

Thank you for the chance!

craftytammie said...

they could help me brush up on my high school francais while we baked a strawberry schaum torte for family christmas dinner this weekend :)

Anya said...

Three French Hens.....Yeah, I think I'd have them teach me French. Maybe then I'd finally be bilingual!

NurseBrandy said...

I would have to give them to my sister since our home isn't really set up for hens. My sister has an amazing chicken coop. Can't believe I just described a chicken coop as "amazing," but it is! Those hens would live a life of luxury there. LOL

Jennifer said...

I'd love to watch three French hens clucking around the yard; they'd each have fancy French names, and love to snack on slugs.

Jennifer

Jess said...

I would get a coop and a rooster and then enjoy watching them all peck and cluck around in the backyard.

christilee said...

3 French Hens to serve for Christmas Dinner!!!

Marilee said...

Serve them up.

JaneB said...

Y'know DH & I have been discussing putting in a small chicken coop, so these hens would be very welcome in our garden! That fabric is a delight, thanks for sharing.

craftykat said...

I am sure they would exhaust my daughter as she crawled after them!

Patchwork and Play said...

Keep two for eggs and one for dinner!

SewSuzie said...

Re they Bresse hens if so i am sorry to say they would be served for dinner.

Beth said...

I would watch with great curiosity to see if they would teach our hens to cluck in French.

Martine said...

I would keep them in the garden and enjoy the eggs .During breaking the eggs i will be thinking off your wonderful give away

littlebetty said...

Eat em!

Deb said...

Oh they would make a lovely casserole ;)

b78ayers said...

Hands down, those hens would get roasted and taken to the soup kitchen downtown!

Pam said...

3 French Hens would be wonderful to watch in my backyard. I would build them a coop and keep them as pets.

olneyqueen at hotmail.com said...

Three French Hens would lay eggs for the baking and breakfast. They would rule the roost at our house!

Love Whimsy!

Cindy said...

We would make Christmas cookies from the eggs of Three French Hens and let the hens eat bugs in the backyard. That's a win/win - dual duty hens.

jayne said...

What a great question! Three french hens....? They might make a great addition to our nightly walk with the dog...cute on 3 little leashes! Sorry neighbors!

Margaret said...

Give them to a 4-H kid to raise for the fair.

Michelle @ Barabooboo said...

Well, I'd invite them in for dinner...everyone knows the French are excellent company!!

22marigoldst said...

3 french hens? I'd make chicken cordon bleu with them. Yum! That sounds really good.

Brigette Joy said...

Yum! I would give them to friend who keeps chickens.

Purl Buttons said...

With three French hens, I would photograph them and play with the images, print my own fabric and make some chicken quilts. I would try to paint them for note cards and I would knit them tiny sweaters. Really, I would. But I would have to give them to my brother so he can start his retirement hobby farm. We are deed restricted from chickens and roosters! I find that funny.

Pattie Crum said...

I would love to say something sweet but, I'm pretty sure I would eat them sooner or later.

Dona said...

My cat does the same thing. I think an alarm goes off when I pick up my camera and he follows me so he can get in the photo!
