Once upon a time there were 11 little chickens.
Some of the chickens were bigger.
And some were smaller.
But they all grew up together in the same big brooder.
They learned their ABC’s.
Some of them were quite artistic.
One of them liked to fly outside the brooder. He was a big chicken now! He was ready to see the world.
But there were giant, critter-eating monsters outside their happy home.
The world is a scary place for a big chicken who is really just little.
So the little chicken went back home. And the people put up screens so he couldn’t go out again.
The brooder was safe and warm. He would be a big chicken some day, but not yet.
