Beware Of Chicken
- Sexual Content
- Traumatising content
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.

I've enjoyed this thoroughly.
I think what helps this succeed is the setting. The story takes place around a farm near a village for a most part, with small jaunts to the city. There are clear signs of a larger world woven in, but focusing on a small part of it allows a tighter narrative to be woven.
I think this is really the strength of this story. Not much really happens in this, unlike a lot of cultivation novels, where progress should be quantified, measured, and structured. Here, we know our MC is powerful, but that power is used to live a good life.
The characters are also very well fleshed out. I especially like the redemption arc that was portrayed; it packed a good punch. Not every character got a lot of fleshing out, which isn't the end of the world. The cast was kept fairly compact, so that no character felt like a name to be thrown out and promptly forgotten, and each character did have their place to play in the world.
I didn't give the story a perfect score, because the story was very much like a pebble rolling down the hill. I had trouble envisioning such an idyllic narrative to be honest. Perhaps Volume 2 will add a more powerful antagonist, but this beginning didn't really have enough conflict to make for a cathartic conclusion.
The grammar, style, character, and the world are all masterpieces. Each of the characters has depth, even if they're an animal. The story is so well presented and laid out that it just makes you want to keep on reading. The MC isn't the smartest guy around but he is sensible.
But in the end, the only thing that matters is that this book turned a chicken into a cultivation. People are going to look back one day, and they are going to say this is the book that started the revolution.
The comedy is terrible, the plot is nonexistent, the characters have nothing to them until author randomly decides to give a typical unoriginal backstory to one of the girls. The setting is bland and undeveloped. No idea why it's rated so highly. Average chapter moves the story along by nothing. No direction at all.
Full of interesting characters, amusing antics, and domestic bliss. It's a refreshing change from the absurd powerlevels and infinite incrementation of regular cultivation stories, even though those things are still part of the setting. It aknowledges what we all (mostly I, but I can't be alone in this) know: those things aren't what's important in life.
I can't recommend it enough!
I purposefully gave this review to catch people who ignore the 5 star reviews and the 1 ~ 2 star reviews, ya I'm talking to you!
Give this novel a shot, it has the trademarks of a green novelist but one that is definitely has some skill and that skill keeps growing!
The story takes the view point of several character through the story but it's done well enough as to not confuse the reader. The steady pace of the story really does look like it's going some where as oppose to just a waste of time slice of life (for the record I like slice of life but still) .
And you won't be disappointed by the antics of the side characters!
Ps / spoilers:
The MC is also Canadian if that does anything for you as it did for me!
Story is awesome, very fun and a joy to read. Thank you author!
I like the pacing, it is easy to follow. It also had no glaring editorial issues, just the small error here and there.
I reached the ending for vol 1 and I believe I never experienced a more wholesome ending to a volume before. Kudos for the work!
So charming and fun. It's like a reverse happy Animal Farm, meets Redwall, meets isekai. The story flips between the human protagonist and the animals. I love seeing the differences in how they percieve reality. Volume 2 is a bit more serious with more human drama. Still enjoyable, but slighlty less light hearted. I'm hoping there'll be more humor to balance things out in the future. Highly recommend!
Starts as funny and clever, and eventually you're fully engaged in the story. The humor changes as the story progresses, shifting from the absurdity of cultivating chickens to witty dialogue and contrasting personality types. The first book doesn't have a chief antagonist or overarching problem to solve, but that fits with the book's spirit.
After reading book 1 I have found myself unable too continue in fear of having too wait on new chapters.
One of, if not the most wholesome story I have ever read.
A very cleaver take on the xainxia genre; very refreshing for a avid reader otherwise burrowed in cultural waste. Of course this also implies that if you are after the run of the mill, ordinary story, this man not be the story for you.
Keep up the good work!
A very wholesome, relaxing story. Has great character relationships, Extremely likeable, smart, kind, and hardworking protagonist, the story is very funny when it wants to be, has very good character writing with very realistic personalities. This story became one of my favourites really fast, reading it made me in a very good mood and made me smile the whole way through it.
