Introduction

Here is a poem and a song about hatching chickens! What can you learn from them?


What Is an Egg?, by Lucia Kemp Henry


What is an egg?
It's a special place.
It's warm and it's safe.
It's a cozy space.
What is an egg?
It's a place to start
Growing bones and a beak
And feathers and a heart.
What is an egg?
It's a place to grow
For a chick and a duck
And an owl and a crow.
What is an egg?
It's a place to begin
For all sorts of birds;
For rooster and hen.


I'm a Little Chicken, by Susan Peters

I'm a little chicken,
Ready to hatch,
Pecking at my shell,
Scratch, scratch, scratch.
When I crack it open, out I'll leap,
Fluff up my feathers and cheep, cheep, cheep!

(Sung to  the tune of “I'm a Little Teapot”)
