The Chickens French folktale

A little chicken one day got a beating by his parents and ran away from the hen house with his two brothers. All day long they looked for a place to stay, but found neither a cave or an abandoned house. So they went into the wood, chose a small clearing and began to build a hut.

After eight days they had finished their hut and placed a bouquet on the roof to celebrate their new home. Unfortunately the elder brother among them danced and wiggled so long that in the end he broke wind. It came so fast and strongly that it knocked down the hut.

The noise was so loud that their parents heard it and said to themselves: "It can only be our chickens!" At that they hurried into the wood, and there they found their chickens. Quite ashamed they took them home to the farm again.
