The chicks are commonly shown alongside the mother. She wants to plant corn, and they are willing to help sow, harvest and eat it. Donald Duck and Peter Pig, however, just want to eat it, and pretend to have a stomach ache so they don't have to help. When the chicks finish helping their mom by planting and harvesting, they get to eat the corn soup, cornbread and other food made from corn while Donald and Peter get castor oil.
