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.

The best book on here that I've read in months.
A wonderful mix of slice of life, wry humour and heartfelt character progression.
A complete opposite of every traditional xianxia novel i've read before and I loved it.
I dreaded pressing next chapter every time I got to the end of a chapter in case it was the last one and I had caught up.
Looking forward to all continuing releases, thank you very much author.
I'm enjoying it a lot so far. Laid-back vibes with some lighthearted comedy sprinkled in, but still engaging and leaving you wanting for more. Definitely a joy to read if you're looking for something nice and relaxing, I'd recommend it. So far, there hasn't been much in the way of some big plot, only some things brewing on the horizon, so I'm looking forward to that. No grammar issues as far as I can tell. I was surprised to see it near the top of Best Rated with "only" around 10k views, but now I kinda get it, there isn't much to criticize even if it isn't your type of novel imo.
Normally I break down each catagory. but its all good. grammar is fine. style is good although the start kinda read like a children's book somehow. story is good. and characters are the best part.
No tension slice of life. Dude living it up and making fun of the genre along the way.
read the first volume. abuse in the second so I dropped.
This is one of those stories that is just pure undiluted fun. The author takes an absurd concept, and then sets it up so well that it stops being absurd and starts being beautiful.
And what keeps it fun are the superbly engaging characters.
The MC is genuinely relatable in a low-key way, while the cast of thinking animals provide the xianxia color.
The title is no false advertisement. In the great Fa Ram sect, one must indeed beware the chicken, for he is the senior disciple. In other news, Jin finds it hilarious that his rooster seems be practicing kick-style martial arts on the farm's fence. The bird looks so cute! The sign "beware of chicken" is a joke, really, how much damage could a not-very-large rooster do to unwary intruders?
For this story, the slow pace is a feature. It's ultimately about a guy wanting to live life one day at a time and avoid 'cultivator bullshit'... not realizing that he is the cultivator causing all the bullshit. The story has a rich supporting cast (including the MC's eventual significant other), not just animals. The other people surrounding the MC all feel like genuine people trying to live their lives.
One must also mention that so far the other has maintained a rock solid daily update rate. That's extremely commendable, especially on a story of this quality.
The story itself is an excellent slice-of-life, with just enough action to keep things spicy. It's a brilliant balance between fluff, romance and action, and is a joy to read (or in my case, re-read for the 4th time).
"Beware of Chicken", despite having less than a hundred pages at the time of writing this review, is one of, if not the best xianxia webserial I have come across. In this story, the main character is transmigrated to a xianxia world and placed inside the body of a young sect member. He then does the only reasonable thing to do and gets the hell out of dodge to become a farmer.
The novel is an extremely well written comedy/slice of life novel with enough serious plot elements to keep the reader engaged without overwhelming the more comedic aspects.
The characters are multidimensional and behave in realistic and interesting manners. The overall writing style is solid and immersive, and I was unable to find any issiues with the grammar. I genuinely cannot think of anything negative to say about this web serial, aside from maybe complaining there isn't more out yet, although with the web serial's so far daily upload schedule, this is likely to fix itself with time.
Overall I would recomend this novel to lovers and haters of the xianxia genere as well as anyone else looking for a slice of life/comedy with suprisingly compelling characters and story elements.
I hesitated to read a story about a chicken. But, when I saw the number of followers climb I gave it a shot and am glad I did.
A wonderful/novel take on the wuxia genre. Well done. Who would of imagined a sane rationa wuxia MC could be this interesting.
Soo this is my first review.
I really liked the slow life the Mc is living and you are doing a great job displaying the different views of the characters. Normally I don't like it if the author changes pov but you do it in an enjoyable way till now.
So in conclusion : great job I really enjoy reading this novel 👍😊
This is just straight up comfy. If regular xania has the characters fighting against heaven, this one has it working with the earth. Our main character is just living his best life, without worrying about immortality. I never re-vist stories once I've read them. But sometimes stuff just don't feel ok, you know? This helped.
Ps. I like to listen to speific types of music while reading this novel. I suggest listening to instumental country when Jin is the POV, and instrumental chinese battle music for everyone else. Enhances the experience.
I skipped over this story several times thinking, why would I want to read a story about a chicken? Then I read the reviews which were all giving it really good ratings and decided, why not give it a try. I am glad I did. Its a great story.
The other reviewers do a much better job of letting you know what to expect. Read em. I just wanted to encourage you to forget the story title and just read the first couple fo chapters. You will be hooked.
How is this so ridiculously good? I was curious of a fic with such a high rating, but I wasn't expecting something this good.
The premise is great, which you figure out in the first few chapters. The story is mostly character growth, that is done fantastically. Every character is full of personality, which I think is the main core of the story. The writing is good for the first few chapters, before becoming great thereafter.
In retrospect, the main draw of the fic is not even its protagonist. Which, once I look back is pretty run of the mill Xianxia isekai, with a twist. It is in fact the various perspectives that surround him and are warped by his protag nature, that is the main draw. We jump between perspectives often, and each of them carry entirely different tones and weights to each other. A fleeting and entertaining glimpse in to the personal lives, who are the centers of their own stories, and who we care about due to how they interact with the protagonist.
