However the maturity of the chicken also matters. While baby chickens are seen as a delicacy in some places, for the most part they are not consumed by people that feel they are more civilized, or morally above the activity of consuming baby chickens. If the chicken is just old enough to eat then this means that you are probably hungry. Chickens inspire hunger because they are a food source.
However, in many cases, these chickens can also represent basically the opposite of hunger. In many cases people feel guilty for eating meat, and by seeing a chicken in your dreams, the animal that you eat in its natural habitat, judging you for wanting to eat it, then you are being presented with the guilt that you feel on a more visual level. This type of dream is a manifestation of guilt for having been eating so much meat lately. Perhaps it might behoove you to stop eating meat or to at least take a break from it so that you can also take a break from having so many dreams about these animals tearing on your heartstrings for having consumed them.
Another dream of a baby chicken can relate more to innocence. You may not feel guilty about eating meat, and you may even be vegetarian, but a baby chicken is far different from an adult. While an adult chicken inspires a sense of fear almost in some cases and can do serious damage with its beak, a baby chicken is seen as the essence of all that is cute. This adorable animal cannot be blamed for anything even when it is completely guilty. Therefore if you see this chicken, it might be because you feel that you are innocent in a situation.
Another thing associated with that innocence is childhood and the baby chicken can also be associated with Easter traditions. If you are seeing chickens constantly it may just be because you want to return to those childhood days back when things were easier and life was more exciting.
Finally another meaning that baby chickens might have in your dream is that of fear. The only thing more symbolic of fear than a chicken is a baby chicken because it is even smaller and more fragile. When you see baby chickens too often in your dreams you should think about whether there is something in your life you are afraid of in a very physical sense. You are feeling a very real fear of a very real thing, not a foreboding wariness such as with fear of taxes or something, you are afraid of a monster!
