Chickens in redwall
« on: May 04, 2013, 02:15:30 AM »

I have a question... Why are there no CHICKENS in redwall!?
NO snide comments about chickens being chickens people, that CAN make me go bloodwrath berserk. Roosters are far from timid. They will go and attack a FOX yes a FOX, if it is threatening the roosters hens and chicks. A mother hen is one of natures best. they will never let their chicks stray far and cam be positivly deadly when they are threatened! :o :o :o :o :o

Un, I think it's cause Brian Jacques was focusing more on the rodent-like animals than farm animals. Also, most of the birds in the series are the fierce or the flying type, like hunting birds and geese.

There's lots of animal species missing from Redwall. Redwall is based on native British animals, so things like chickens, wolves, bears, skunks, etc. don't exist.

In his first Redwall book, he had refrence to creatures, like beavers and dogs, that would never appear or be mentioned again in the Redwall series. Also, they had food that seemed inpossable for them to accuire, like goatsmilk. But that is most likely because it was his first Redwall book, so he hadn't had in mind were to officially put Redwall in, the real world of that Redwall world were all the other books (his first book was as well, but not quite the same). So if there was any refrence to Ckickens in Redwall, it would make sence if they were refrenced to in the first Redwall book.

I think they do have chickens in The UK but chickens just aren't the Redwall type. ;)

Chickens are more of domesticated animals, and there aren't any humans in Redwall, which probably means there are no chickens in Mossflower Woods.

I really meant to say native British animals ... I don't think chickens were native to Britain, although I can't honestly say I know where they come from.

Redwall also only deals with fairly small animals, so horses, cows, goats, etc. are too big, although, again, I don't really know whether or not those are all native or not. Realistically something like a horse could easily squash a mouse or jump over the walls of Redwall Abbey, so it makes sense to limit the sizes so the battles aren't too silly.

I hate it when a package says 'easy open' and you need a scissors, a knife, a crowbar, a gun, and a light-saber to open it.

I do agree with you; being a chicken lover.

Maybe if the Brian Jacques used farm animals instead of Woodland creatures for Redwall, there would be a "Deadly chicken" character.

I googled it, they originated in India
