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.

The breadth of this story is fresh

Reviewed at: Chapter 53: The End of the Beginning

I was looking for a fun story about slice of life and I got that, but I also got some introspective things I never thought I would find in a Xianxia story.  Really fun and enjoyable, the story has some tensions, but the chaos is quelled and the Farm is safe.  I find it funny that Chunky is the only one that knows everyone's names.  Great story and I look forward to continuing to read it in the future.


I have not encountered any other stories that allow the reader to just "Drink in the moment" like this story. I hate to repeat what others have said but my only regret is that there is not anymore to read at the moment.

The way the author describes the environment is a style I am a big fan of and the narrative style is a perfect mix of multifaceted and focused. When I think about trying to explain the story progress so far, not much has happened but I enjoyed every minute of it.


Condensed goodness

Reviewed at: v2 c28: Depart

This is a wonderful take on xianxia and a subversion of it's tropes while maintaining some of its core aspects. It's like to xianxia as kono-suba is to isekai..... Except wholesome instead of degenerate.

Story is light but still has body. Characters have just enough definition to be relevant without weighing down the story. At the end of volume 1 the world building is solid and the story is wide open to progress in many different ways with each sure to be a unique and pleasant experience.



Short summary:

This is not a neutral review. Just my thoughts on this novel with the intention to give a feel of the story for potential readers.

It is about a cultivator, who thinks that the path of cultivation in sects is just to brutal and ruthless and leaves to become a farmer.
The premise sounds kind of boring but the novel is really not.

The MC is smart and kind (rare combo, and it actually works).

The MC with his farm actually grows stronger and there is some solid good paced progression. (Weak to strong is best)

The world building, thoughts and views of the mc and other characters actually feels solid and done in good amounts.

There is some action but really in moderation.

There is no harem. (just some nicely done romance)

If u want a novel that has progression, a smart MC and really kicks your dopamin, than this novel is for you.

That's my opinion on this novel. Really dont want to spoiler anything.
Just give this novel a try, it really is worth your time.

PS: The grammer is good and doesnt obstruct the reading flow.

PPS: Advanced Reviews must be at least 200 words long


This story is many things, well written, beautifully constructed, and has great characters.

But mainly, it is happy. It is pure. And it is a joy to read. It's from what I have seen a unique twist in the genre and manages to balance happy slice of life with a powerful protagonist who is a genuinely nice person. 


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!


Seemed very origional to me, Start was a tiny bit messy.  Humour is on point and characters are relateable. 5 out of five for me. Read from start to finish of first Arc in one go - staying up late to so and i'm very fond of my sleep.  Well done, I look forward to the book.


Number #1 trending story on RR

Reviewed at: Vol1: Epilogue

I would just like to commemorate Sunday, March 7 as the day that Beware of Chicken officially displaced Mother of Learning as the number one most trending story on Roaylroad. A completely new take on an overdone genre, Beware of Chicken is a breath of fresh air for those who are tired of the common, and incredibly repetitive, Xianxia cultivation trope. A fantastic blend of a well paced storyline, interesting characters, and beautiful grammar. What you have here is a masterpiece, and no one can say that your shiny new throne was unearned


As if it was written by a Chicken god

Reviewed at: Volume 1.5: Kintsugi

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. 


Positive character slice of life

Reviewed at: Vol1: Epilogue

Thorough character building that leans towards uplifting energy. Enjoyable side characters. A few twists for captivation without getting side tracked. Influence  takes place on all character interactions and has some side character perspective that is funny and adds to the over all story. I like the final chapters that hit towards trou le that the MC might get entangled with. Only disappointing part is limited measurable growth in MC. Power and hits elude to significant changes happening but nothing tangible.
