One morning a fluffy chick was
born.The chick had a yellow beak and
yellow feet. The mother chicken's name was Speckled Hen and she
loved the fluffy chick very much.
Speckled Hen taught her baby chick how to eat worms. When a big
black cat got after the chick, Speckled Hen hid the chick under her
wing for protection.
The chick watched a rooster crow and tried to do it too. The
chick was unable to crow and fell into a puddle of water. The
chick was wet now so Speckled Hen warmed the chick until he dried out
and was round and fluffy again. How would you have helped the
baby chick get out of the water?
