Flannel Rhyme: “This Little Chick”

This little chick is black.
She stands in the barnyard on a big haystack.

This little chick is brown.
She is feeling sad and wearing a frown.

This little chick is yellow.
She’s friends with the rooster; he’s a handsome fellow.

This little chick is white.
She dances and plays, oh what a sight.

This little chick is purple.
She spends her day running around in a circle.

This little chick is green.
She is the prettiest chick I’ve ever seen.

This little chick is blue.
She lays eggs for me and you.

This little chick is pink.
She goes down to the pond to get a drink.

All of these chicks live at the farm,
Out in the big red barn.

this little chick
