This is a reference either to your own babyhood. or feelings or events associated with it, or even to your external baby or babies. This may at times point to vulnerable people or assets.

Example: ‘An old lady made room for me to sit at the end of one of the three seats of a bus. As we drove away a very large chicken size baby bird flew in. It had short stubby wings and yellow down, but flew expertly. I believe it first landed on the lady and chirped squeakily. But in it’s squeaks it actually spoke, saying it had lost it’s mother. It sounded as if it were crying.’ Andrew.

Here the chicken obviously represents the dreamers own childhood feelings of desertion. The old lady is the mother. The bus is a shared journey with others – we all have difficult feelings.

Chicks in a dream might also point to your own children, or even children you want to have or will have. See: Birds.

Coming out of the egg is a reference to birth, and the shell of the egg is the protection provided by being in the womb and early childhood. So coming out of the shell is the facing of independent life – literally ‘coming out of your shell’.

The life cycle of a bird has so many similarities with important human stages of growth we frequently use birds to represent parts of our own deeply felt experience, such as being totally dependent upon parents ‘in the nest’. The amazing experience of ‘leaving the nest’ and how well it has been managed. Learning to fly and so becoming independent. They are all so much a part of our own tings we meet in life. See Individuation

Useful Questions and Hints:

What was happening to the chick – what part of its life cycle was involved?

What feelings were experienced or indicated in the dream? (The example of the baby bird crying for instance.)

Can you get into the role of the chick and feel it? That will really give you insight into your dream.

The baby chick was chasing me around but I wasn’t running. I was facing it, sitting down, legs in front of me but I was being pulled by a force from the back of my shirt. The baby chicken seemed a little upset. I only have these dreams when I’m hot and uncomfortably sweaty. Oh, also, I was in a house that wasn’t mine but had some similarities as my house….what does it all mean?!?
