The farm is on fire and there is very little that the farmer or his family can do. The children watch as the barn is engulfed in flames. Thankfully the fire engine arrives in time to save the house and slowly but surely the family tries to get back to normal. But when the farmer is going over the damage he can't find the little white hen anywhere. Where could she be? A search through the burnt buildings soon brings to light the scorched remains of the little white hen - but there is new life and new hope. The little white hen has died but she has given her life to save the lives of her brood of tiny yellow chickens.
An ideal picture of what Jesus Christ has done for us by giving his life for us on the cross.
