Blue Hen Sculpture
association with the Blue Hen dates back more than 200 years to
the Revolutionary War. At that time, a regiment of Kent County soldiers
gained such a reputation for ferocity in battle that they were compared
to the gamecocks the men kept for sporting amusement behind the
lines. This particular breed was distinguished by its striking blue
plumage and aggressive behavior. As UD’s athletic mascot,
the name dates back to 1911, and in 1939 the Blue Hen was officially
adopted as Delaware’s state bird.
The copper statue
has been created by artists Dawn Mickel and John Gardini, and has
been handcrafted in their studio in Virginia’s Blue Ridge
Mountains. Each piece is signed and numbered.
