Tom is chasing Jerry on a farm, and Jerry hides behind a hen. The hen gets startled when Tom comes running over to where Jerry is, so she gives Tom a barrage of pecks on the head. Jerry dresses himself up as a chick to further disguise himself, and acts like he’s one of the hen’s. The rest of the chicks think Jerry is just another one of them. While Tom keeps trying to get past the hen, Jerry relaxes as he now knows that he’s safe with the protective bird.
