Slow Read Chinese -- Raise Baby Chicken


养小鸡
我爱吃鸡蛋,每天我都要吃一个。通常吃早饭的时候,我会煎一个鸡蛋,洒一点盐,再洒一点黒椒,味道就很不错。
如果去超市买鸡蛋,的确很方便,但是买回来的鸡蛋不是很新鲜。我想,要是每天能吃到新鲜的鸡蛋就好了。我家后院有一块空地,应该有足够的空间放一座鸡舍。于是,我去农贸市场买回来新的鸡舍和几只小鸡。有的小鸡是黄色的,有的是白色的,有的是黑色的,有的是浅褐色的,一个个毛茸茸的,可爱极了。
现在,我每天都忙着照顾这些小鸡,希望它们快快长大,我就有新鲜的鸡蛋吃了。
Raise Baby Chicken
I like eating eggs. I eat egg everyday. At breakfast, I would cook a fried egg with a little bit salt and pepper as spice. It is very delicious.
It is convenient to buy eggs at the supermarket. But the eggs are not very fresh. I think, it would be great if I could have some fresh eggs every day. There is a vacant space in my backyard. It looks like there should be enough space for a chicken coop. Therefore, I went to the farmers’ market and bought a new chicken coop and some baby chickens.  Some of them are yellow, some are white, some are black, some are light brown. All of them are so fluffy and cute.
Now I am busy taking care of my baby chickens. I am hoping that they will grow up quickly and I will have fresh eggs soon.
