Jin Rou wanted to be a cultivator who defied the heavens, and surpassed all limits.

Unfortunately for him, he died, and now I’m stuck here. Arrogant young masters? Heavenly tribulations? Cultivating for days on end, then getting into life or death battles?

Yeah, no thanks. I'm getting out of here.

In which a transmigrator decides that the only winning move is not to play.

Beware of Chicken will be updated Monday to Wednesday, and then Friday.

Mind sentience

cultivate humility, not piety

Reviewed at: ROUS

I usually despise cultivation stories; finding them dull, boring, and highly repetitive.

This Author has certainly knocked his summary out of the park; something that would often turn me away did its job, drew me in, and fed my curiosity.

I adore the take on cultivation in this Novel and highly recommend it to everyone to give it a shot.

Well Done Author!!! Well Done!!!


Volume 1 excellent. Volume 2...meh.

Reviewed at: v2 C20: Knock-off Part 1

I found volume one to be excellent. Great pacing, great comedy, minimal nonsense. Really really enjoyed it. 

Then volume 1 ended and volume 2 started. Since then, it's been constant perspective changes and very little depth (or progress) to the story. I'll stick with it for the moment, but I'm definitely not excited about new chapter releases anymore. 


Cultivation novel with farming instead of fighting

Reviewed at: Chapter 23: The Young Mistress

A marvelous novel where the MC's focus is on farming instead of fighting and getting stronger. He makes the decision to quit as a very outer disciple to start a farm in the most boring (and safest) part of the continent. It's hinted that appreciation of life and nature is more important for ascending than continually fighting and chasing power which I find a refreshing change from the usual cultivation novels.

The novel is written from different perspectives with the perspective of the MC in first person. It's fun to read from the perspective of different characters as it gives a good overview of the impact of the MC's actions. Moreover it gives a bit of variety which is pleasant to read.

All in all I would definitely recommend this novel to someone who likes cultivation novels. It gives a nice spin to familiar tropes and is a refreshing read.


A little xianxia action, a little slice of life, a dash of romance. This is a truly refreshing contribution to the genre. Every aspect of the story is good, but what makes it really stand out is that the main character doesn't focus on gaining power. The chicken provides an excellent foil in that regard.


This is just funny and relaxing. The xianxia animals are funny, and I enjoy the descriptions of enjoying his life. I do hope he flies under the radar of the big sects, especially in comedic ways, like mistaken identity and slapstick kind of stuff.

He worries about power corrupting him, he's afraid of that. This is a very human and normal fear to have, and makes him different from the usually sociopathic xianxia character. I like how the traditional xianxia characters are all animals, it takes away some of the tension in the battles, so they're more enjoyable. 


This is like a nice cup of tea. Aaaahhhh. Thanks


This story has the mc throw the cultivator bullshit out the door and settle down on the farm. And it's very funny. Read. It. Now. It is very good and so good that I want to read it again how many words is 50 I hope I have enough 


Don't be fooled by the simplicity or silliness of the title, for this is a great read full of humour, good lessons and endearing characters. Could use a bit more editing as there are some minor orthographic errors, but it doesn't impair its reading, as I still found myself laughing out loud and getting heavily invested in its story.

It also can be perfectly summed up with this song: "Chicken Attack" from schmoyoho on Youtube.

I wholeheartedly recommend it and invite you to support the author to continue more of their good work.


This story is fun and light-hearted without being absurd.  There are elements or mystery and drama, but no deeply tortured protagonists or heart-break. It is a great, entertaining, and relaxing read.  And it updates daily!

Spoilers follow:

The MC, as the description says, abandons a sect in which he is a low initiate to become a solitary farmer.  He grows rice, raises animals, becomes involved in the life of the local village, and visits the nearest large town.  The MC grows in power, but is largely unaware of his own growth.  It becomes apparent over time that the secret to the MC's power is not caring about power, a feature which allows the author to avoid or subvert a lot of the OP MC tropes. 

There are lots of fun characters, many of whom are fairly relatable. 

There is also a hilarious role reversal as the farm animals exposed to his power become sentient and take on the stereotypical behaviors of cultivating humans.  And there are many funny scenes where others seek to understand the MC and his motivations - many think he is hiding something, because a cultivator aspiring to be a good farmer and helpful neighbor is too absurd for most to contemplate.  These encounters seem to be sowing seeds for future evolutions in the plot.

Yes, there are some minor typos, but you can easily get past these. No other negatives.

Overall, well worth the read!


Great start for a fun Xianxia story

Reviewed at: Chapter 25: The Students

This has been such a fun read so far! I was able to binge the 25 chapters available when I started, and can't wait for more. It's such a refreshing take on the reborn in a xianxia story trope, avoiding the awkward stupidity, bad romance, and cliched writing. Overall, very good, very fun, very well done. The main character, love interest, and side characters all have thier own quirks, making them fun to encounter! No frustration caused by unrealistic stupidity as well. Excited to see when some more problems read their head for the MC, but so far things are moving along in a fun Slice of life story. It's good to have a break from constant struggles due to plot armor and plot attraction to problems.

And the chicken? The chicken and other farm animals are the best part. I was worried at first about the cover and title, but they're actually perfect. The chicken is a sentient spirit animal, which has its own cut scenes from his perspective. I wish I had started reading it sooner, but I'm also sad that there are only 25 chapters available.


Ironically, some of the pitfalls you would normally expect to effect the MC instead hit the MC chicken. He seems to be the magnet for tropey troubles encountered in a xianxia world, but without being to frustrating.


Google "Buk Gok meme" before reading this novel

Reviewed at: Chapter 24: The Princess and the General

Lmao if you are tired of the same xiaxia-novel tropes this is the one for you.

It's sort of a subversion, but in the most benign sense?

Basically, it's a weirdly wholesome way to show an alternative to the worst tropes the genre currently has on offer.

You know exactly which ones i am talking about.
