Five Little Chickens
a traditional English rhyme

Said the first little chicken,
With a strange little squirm,
"I wish I could find
A fat little worm."

Said the second little chicken,
With an odd little shrug,
"I wish I could find
A fat little bug."

Said the third little chicken,
With a sharp little squeal,
"I wish I could find
Some nice yellow meal."

Said the fourth little chicken,
With a sigh of grief,
"I wish I could find
A little green leaf."

Said the fifth little chicken,
With a faint little moan,
"I wish I could find
A wee gravel stone."

"Now see here," said the mother,
From the green garden patch,
"If you want any breakfast,
Just come here and SCRATCH!"


  1. That's a cute one Ratty, thanks for sharing.

  2. I must email this to my granddaughter and other wee ones in my family!

  3. This is so cute! I love it and the pic. I see baby chicks each time I go to buy critter food. They sell them there. I always stop and look at them. They are so fuzzy.

  4. Thanks to each of you for your kind comments. I'm glad you like this little poem I found.
