The History of a chicken.

A set of magic lantern slides made by Theobald & Co, England.
Our chick's life didn't start well. His mother died when he was only two days old and the other chickens badgered him. He befriended the farmer's daughter and a pig who also lived on the farm. The pig defended him from the evil outside world, but was killed when protecting his friend from a fox attack. The pig was buried and the chicken losed increasingly weight and eventually died of grief.
