Don’t Jump!

The chicks are growing quickly
They’ll soon outgrow their bin
Today we’ll have to move them
They just will not stay in

They jump up on eachother
They knock the cardboard lid
I hear them cheap and rustle
They’re just like a little kids

They’re getting kind of sassy
They peck at all our hands
I’m trying hard to love them
I’m not sure that I can

They’ve lost their skittish nature
They’ve grown so brave and bold
They may be more like leghorns
Mean and hard to hold

I only hope they lay well
And more than one a week
If they don’t then can guess
What their lot will be
