Billina
Real Name:
Search for 'Billina' on Amazon

Bio:
A yellow hen, originally named "Bill," whom Dorothy Gale found in a chicken coop in a ship sailing for Australia. The two were swept to the Land of Ev, where Billina began to speak instanlty upon her arrival and was integral in the Ozite defeat of the Nome King by hiding under the ruler's throne and making her selections in the ornament room based on the color guide that the king explained to his Chief Steward the pattern he followed in transforming his victims.

Eggs being poison to Nomes, the Nome King was horrified by Billina's presence. The Scarecrow managed to pelt the king with a number of eggs, but they did not appear to do much but faze him enough to allow for Dorothy to take the Magic Belt with which he had transformed her friends.

In Billina's honor, no chickens, which are mostly her children (and named Dorothy if female and Daniel if male) are consumed by law, although the Ozites do consume unfertilized eggs. Shortly after arriving in Ev, a rooster pounced upon Billina. She reported this to Dorothy as an attack, and is probably where her children came from, whether this is accurate or if she did not want to explain to young Dorothy from where babies come.
