The Silly Chicken is a delightful tale of a chicken who learns to speak as we do. It is one of the many hundreds of traditional stories collected by Idries Shah from oral and written sources throughout this region. For more than a thousand years this story has entertained young people and helped to foster in them the ability to examine their assumptions and to think for themselves.
