Why?

 

Because he wanted people to quit calling him "a chicken."

The chicken has no say what people call him.  Adam declared him to be a chicken thousands of years ago.

Besides, he doesn't look like a hippopotamus.

I wonder what the word for chicken was in the original language?

Interestingly enough, the words chicken and chickens are not mentioned in the Hebrew at all.

But then again, neither is hippopotamus.

Ah, so, maybe Adam didn't call him a chicken...and that's why he's crossing the road - to get back to the Garden and find out what his real name is!

Since when one is considered to be chicken, it is because they are fearful. 

Maybe Adam called the chicken "yare'," (yaw-ray) the word for fearful?   LOL

Well, some of you may think me strange for doing this; but I decided to check out the origin for the English word "chicken."  What I discovered was, to me, both interesting and ironic.  The origin for the English word "chicken" is from the Old English word cycen, which literally means "little cock," wherein the English word "cock" comes from the Old English word coc.  What I found interesting and ironic about this is that in the present day the word "chicken" is employed as figure of speech for someone who is timid and fearful, whereas the word "cock" ("cocky") is employed as a figure of speech for someone who is strongly self-confident and even arrogant.  Although these two words originate from the same place, with the one word simply refering to a smaller version of the other, when employed as figures of speech, they now refer to that which is the opposite of one another.  To me, that is ironic.

Male chickens can actually be quite brave. A rooster will often attack people which are many times his size.. I've been attacked by one myself. Hens are known, also. to defend their babies from larger animals and people.

Then, the Hebrew word would be "geber," the word for warrior.  LOL

The question arises...

After Adam's eyes were opened to knowing right from wrong, did he chastise the chicken for using fowl language?
