    Sing the Little Chickie song to them. I taught this to my 6 year old granddaughter and she sings it to expecting mothers. My grandfather taught it to me so it's at least 100 years old.

    I had a little chickie who would not lay an egg,

    so I poured hot water up and down her leg,

    Oh, that little chickie hollered and that little chickie begged,

    then the little chickie laid a hard boiled egg.



    Or you could wave a box of shake-and-bake at them. [​IMG]
