Hen Ditches Healthy Diet to Make a Grab for Some Cheez-Its

A hungry hen couldn’t resist the lure of Cheez-Its at a home in Florence, Massachusetts, footage shared to Facebook shows.

Kentucky native Amanda Howell and her wife, Tina Turner-Maloney, were visiting friends in Florence when the hen, named Myrna, made an enthusiastic approach for the cheesy treat.

Myrna is the “biggest” of four hens owned by their friends, according to Howell.

She told Storyful that she captured the footage on May 25 and explained that Turner-Maloney was eating Cheez-Its when the farmyard animal “decided to jump onto her lap to get some” of them.

Unfortunately for Myrna, Turner-Maloney did a good job in protecting her snacks and the hen finally left her in peace. She did, however, make it up to the bird by painting the chicken coop Myrna calls home later on during her visit. Credit: Amanda Howell via Storyful
