I have a story to tell - about the chick


Hi, I have taken a big risk and here I am with you ppl…Friends of marutham.
I can’t stay here for long! So listen up to what I have to say…..
PS:This post is not for the friends who cannot read long posts!Don't curse me!
It was so wonderful inside mommy’s tummy. It was too dark, but still very safe & secure. It was very quiet no noise at all. No where else can I find that peace! Nor can you …What do you say? Isn’t that the best place in the whole world to be…No1 to bother you except for some loving touch from the outside. It’s your MOM.
Ok here we are back to the story. It was so wonderful inside. A little dark though. I haven’t opened my eyes yet. There are 4 others with me, sharing this little space with me inside Mommy. We often hear this Very Polite ladies voice. She seems talking to some one. Not quiet sure if it is mommy… One fine day we were all out of mommy…But, it was still dark. The five of us were inside this small room, and it still was warm, not as warm as inside. Then this fine day we heard that familiar voice again. She sounded very happy. There were some other voices too that I could hear. The other voices it sounded much sweet and gentle. It wasn’t one person’s voice. Then they left. And we sensed more space in the room. I felt something was missing! Din’t exactly know what! And there was the day, when I could not stay inside. I had to break open and come out – Break open the shell. It was so painful! I did not fit in! I decided to break open. Yes I was the first one to crack out! Yeah! Its me. The chick …It was too bright outside. Too bright! Then I heard some one else crack …it was them - my siblings! Then 3 of us were out. One egg was still in shape – no crack. The 3 of us kept staring at it because it did make some noises ….We kept staring and finally it was our little Sis out. HER EYS- Any one would fall for those twinkling, lightning eyes. She was so cute but weaker than us..too weak a chick. And then guess what we saw…MOMMIEE…She had come back! The 4 of us cuddled with her. She did seem a wonderful mommiee to be born for. But mommiee was not all that happy…I could sense she was Upset about something. Then did mommiee tell me this dirty secret. In the whole Farm Only I know this dirty little secret…..
Mommiee told that, the day 5 of us were out something happened. Out of the 5 eggs, one was so Huge & so Pretty! Mommiee named it the CUTEai -CUTE Muttai Muutai=egg! (Marutham:Sirikadheengapa! Kozhikku thann muttai Pon muttai!Kadhaya gavaninga…Over to chikki)And mommie could not wait to see us out. But then did the owner lady of the farm came , there were her grandchildren too-2 of them very young must be 4-5 years.Guess what, they too were not born alone.They were Twins! Unlike us, the unlucky PENTAPLETS. She looked into our basket. And the moment her eyes scanned the BIG EGG! It glows like a1000WATT Bulb. The hands of this strange existence on earth reached in to our little basket, and she took out the CUTEai.And off she went with her grandchildren. She went and CUTE’ai never returned. Mommiee waited for long thinking that CUTE’ai would return & then She broke with tears. Then days went on, the 4 of us had real great time with Mommiee..Sissy is now feeling better. She is stronger than ever. We 4 and Mommiee walk around the farm and play and sometimes try flying….Hehehe Mommiee tell us a lot about her life.How she came there like am telling you now. Also she told about the sad incidents in her life. One fine day there were lots of commotions in the farm. Mommiee too wasn’t feeling good!
There were people flocked inside the farm. And our lady brought another man with her. He saw us and nodded! I didn’t know what that NOD was for! But I did learn later. This man took Mommiee away and put her in a beautiful Cage. We thought he must be taking us too with him. He left- and my worst fear was “Will mommiee return ???” We didn’t know what happened to mommiee then !While these questions were in my brain…Sissy started crying. Though the 3 of us were there…she wouldn’t get consoled. She was crying. She refused to eat(Peck). She grew weaker and the lady din’t seem to take notice of it. And next day I saw the same Beautifull cage that mommiee was carried away in, this time our lady had brought it. She took all the 4 of us. I was so excited, I told my brothers that it was all over and we are going to where mommiiee is….We squeaked with JOY! We were taken inside the Room where the smell was not so good…. And the lady put her hands inside the CAGE! I remember, It is the second time seeing those hands so near. I was jumping in joy that I would be picked because am the eldest! And Err…! Our little princess was the first. We 3 took it happily…..after all she is our princess! She would be taken to mommiiee first! She was taken to an inner room in the gentle hands of our young lady….then she came empty hand! But only her hands were bare, her eyes were not- Filled with tears!! Why? I don’t know……
AND …….. Now I don’t know what is awaiting!! Do you know??? Tell me if you can! But Some thing tells me things are not normal!
Questions that this little fell’a would ask us when he realizes what is going to happen and what has already happened to their little princess and sweet mommiee!
*Are you killing us for you simply SUSPECT we would have been infected with that virus!! So all these days have you been feeding us to slaughter the chubbiest chicken.
*And how could you take away my little brother or sister (CUTE’ai) to have your breakfast!,While Mommiee was waiting for you , to see you feed her the breakfast! And when mommiee fell sick you decided she was not going to lay you the Eggs anymore and you decided to have CHICKEN 65 in your lunch menu!
The moment we chickens leave Momiee’s tummy,there is no security! We would never know when we would get our call! CALL OF DEATH!
We are BORN for DYING!!
Our ultimate goal of birth is to DIE for or by human beings. We will die as an EGG- Omelet.
Or a young chicken- If it is very healthy/very weak—Immaterial.
Or as a fully grown CHICKEN- as Chicken 65/ 45/ 5 and so on.. Worst is if it had catched up an infection or Virus as you people define. You are all so concerned only about you! You are bothered only to defend yourselves. You don’t care a bit for us. We are also born with every right to live in this world with you. But you all say you own us…like you invented Mommiee’s tummy? Or did you make us?? Then, we would be thinking you love us so much for the way you feed us and give us protection from other predators. One fine day you would take us to consume – immaterial how chubby or weak we are. No one can escape from your mouth, can we? If we never gain weight you complain we are useless and slaughter, or if we are too chubby you worry in few days we MIGHT lose weight and decide to sell us to slaughter for a big money! Will it ever occur in your brains that we are not the only species getting infected? Won’t you ever think of a remedy or some vaccine to protect us earlier? What science do you have that saves only you! It is like you cook and you alone eat not bothering about the starving people, unlike us who share…Oh that’s what the nature of you GREAT HUMAN BEINGS is. What’s the point in telling you that?
*You humans had been spreading this disease at a speed that is so very Fast- Faster than Rumors. Yeah it’s the AIDS. You humans had been spreading this disease and its virus HIV for the past several years so fast and effectively! Do you screw the heads of all the humans because you suspect they may have this Infection – AIDS?
Or do you throw them all in Boiling water and kill? Even here you Silly humans have discrimination…. The poultry farm in a developed country would be sprayed or Injected with the poison, while those creatures in an under developed countries would be thrown into Hot water or head screwed and killed. You eat us, you drink us, you also make money with our products, you get medicines from us, and finally when you hear we could have been infected you don’t try for a cure. YOU ULTIMATELY SLAUGHTER US!
Will you be able to find a way to make every living being of the world to co-exist peacefully and happily? You Human beings claim that you are superior to all other beings in the world. Well, Can you not use your super power brain and make our world a suitable place for every living being to co-exist safely, peacefully and happily?

Hi Marutham,

That was an interesting post.

Yes, you`re right! When God saw those chickens getting culled, surely he must have taken a black ball point pen and marked a cross against humans.

Just because we have a better programmed brain, we think we have a right to kill them mercilessly.
No one seems to think, like say, ok the chicken`s got flu.. Let it recover... get it some medicines. etc..

I eat chicken and relish it, but I sure would like to have better treatment meted out to these poor little things.

If things go this way, I might as well stop eating them.. Not that it will make a big change, but I will be in a better position to voice my feelings.

A Real revelation of a Post!

Thank You!, Marutham

Regards,
Srijith
