The literal meaning of "don't count your chickens before they hatch" is to not count them because they might not actually be chickens, they could just be eggs.
The idiomatic meaning of "don't count your chickens before they hatch" means to not expect something that might not happen. When you count your chickens before they hatch, you might have the wrong count because some could die or not even be fertilized. That is expecting more than what could actually happen.
Don't count your chickens before they hatch.
The way this video relates to my idiom is because in this video, there is a girl counting eggs, and hoping they're chickens. And her friend tells her not to count them before they're hatched.
