Mary had a little chicken.

Mary is eight years old and she doesn’t eat meat or so she claims. And anyway she has a pet chicken who is not a little lamb. Chicken soup isn’t meat is it and it’s her favourite.

The Pot Chicken likes people soup. It’s his favourite. And The Pot Chicken is quite big and not like other chickens.
