Since immemorial times, the hen is a symbol of superficiality because of its clucking and passivity. It is no coincidence that the hen is associated with rumors, whispers, and slander. Therefore, the presence of a hen in your dreams may suggest that someone is making malicious comments about you behind your back. A totally different sense arises if you dream of a hen laying an egg. In these cases, the dream images portend a profit in short time. This dream can also be attributed to excessive concern for your partner, children, or friends to the point of becoming a "mother hen."
