Eagle and the Prairie Chicken   Eagle and the Prairie Chicken Minute   Scout Minute

The moral of the story is that you should stretch your boundaries and try new things rather than listening to the limitations that others have put on themselves.
There once was an indian brave that was walking down the trail when he discovered an eagles egg had fallen out of it's nest. He looked up and saw that the nest was too high for him to return the egg. So he placed the egg in a nearby prairie chicken nest.
When the egg hatched, the little eagle thought he was a prairie chicken. Prairie chickens stay on the ground and eat only worms and grubs. So, as the eagle grew, he ate nothing but worms and grubs and walked around with the other prairie chickens.
One day, he looked up in the sky and saw some eagles soaring high above. He asked one of the prairie chickens, "How can they fly up there while we are down here eating worms and grubs?"
The prairie chicken answered, "They are the eagles, they can do that but we must stay down here. We are prairie chickens and that is what we do."

So, the eagle spent the rest of his life flying very little and eating worms and grubs just because he was told that was all he could do.
