Hatch Eggs Chickens Plans Iap 06 Count Make Based

Id IAP_06
Idiom Don't count your chickens before they hatch.
Meaning Don't make plans based upon something that hasn't happened yet.
Example You shouldn't have counted your chickens before they hatched!

Not all plans turn out the way we think they will. For example, not all eggs hatch. If a farmer counts five eggs in a nest, it doesn't mean he's going to have five baby chicks. If he advertises FIVE CHICKS FOR SALE, he may be in for a disappointing surprise if only three eggs hatch.
