The Baby Chicken Song
By Karen Davis
An Animal Rights Poem from All-Creatures.org

All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.

The Baby Chicken Song
By Karen Davis, United Poultry Concerns (UPC)

(to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star)

Chicken, chicken, how are you
With your mother hen so true?
Pecking, playing, running around
Taking dustbaths on the ground.
Chicken, chicken, how are you
With your mother hen so true?

Chicken, chick, how do you do
With your sisters and brothers, too?
Scratching, running, having fun
Taking sunbaths in the sun.
Chicken, chick, how do you do
With your sisters and brothers, too?

Chicken, chicken, baby bird
May your peeping cries be heard
Heard and felt by all to see
We are all one family.
Chicken, chicken, how are you
With your mother hen so true?
