Don’t count your chickens before they hatch

don't count your chickens

We were having dinner and my son was saying that he was sure he’d get a great score on his math test.

His Dad told him:

DON’T COUNT YOUR CHICKENS BEFORE THEY HATCH

It means that you should not  count on something before it happens.

This proverb can also be used related to finances. Don’t be hasty about evaluating your assets.

Don’t count your chickens before they hatch-we don’t know if they will pay the full amount”

For those of you who don’t know the verb to hatch, it means to be born by coming out of an egg.

Is there a similar expression in your native language?

Lem..xo!
