scarce as hen's teeth

Does a hen have teeth?

So, why would you use an idiom having no teeth? You can put paint on a piece of wood but you cannot put teeth in a hen's mouth.

Does a hen have a mouth? Since hens have no teeth, this term in effect says that something is so scarce as to be nonexistent .... to be very difficult or impossible to find.

My money is as scarce as a hen's teeth! No where to be found when needed.
