Chicks and Hens, Rhymes and Songs

I'm a Little Chick
(Tune: I'm a Little Teapot)
Adapted by Jolanda Garcia, KidsSoup, Inc.

I'm a little chick inside an egg; 
I’m slowly growing from head to leg.
Soon you'll hear a knocking, pecking sound; 
The egg will crack -  and I’ll pop out!

Cluck, Cluck Red Hen 
(Tune: Baa-Baa Black Sheep)

Cluck, cluck red hen 
Have you any eggs? 
Yes sir! Yes sir! 
As many as your legs!

One for your breakfast 
And one for your lunch! 
Come back tomorrow, 
I'll have another bunch!

Cluck, cluck red hen, 
Have you any eggs? 
Yes sir! Yes sir! 
As many as your legs!


Watch chickens with this life cam going about their day, sleeping, eating, dust bathing, scratching the ground, and generally doing chicken things.

This Little Chick

This little chick ate corn today. (Hold up thumb.)
This little chick ate worms, they say. (Hold up first finger.)
This little chick ate yellow meal. (Hold up second finger.)
This little chick ate a potato peel. (Hold up third finger.)
And this little chick like a fluffy ball, (Hold up fourth finger.)
Ate a teeny, tiny, bit of all! 
Corn today! Worms they say!
Yellow meal! Potato peel!

Chook-chook Mrs. Hen
Chook-chook, chook-chook-chook,
Good morning, Mrs. Hen!
How many children do you have?
Madam, I have ten.
Four of them are yellow,
Four of them are brown,
And two of them are speckled red,
The nicest in the town.
