Look, Ned, here is a nest! It is made in this hay, and the old hen is in it.

Put your hand into the, nest, Mary.

O no, the hen will not let me!

But, Mary, I will hold her.

Well, Ned, if you can hold her, I will put my hand into the nest.

O Ned, there are some little chicks under the hen!

Are there?

Do take her off from the nest and let us see them.

Now, Ned, the hen is off the nest, and we can see the chicks. There are six of them.

O the dear little chicks! How pretty they are!

We will feed them, Mary.

Yes, I will run and get some food and give them some water.


Here, chick, chick, chick! Here is some water for you.
