Have you ever wondered what's behind the Chick-Fil-A billboard advertisements on the highway? Why the cows are holding misspelled signs that say, "Eat Mor Chikin"?
Here's the truth.
Many humans favor beef over chicken. Beefsteaks, beefburgers, beef jerky, beef this, beef that, it's tastier than chicken. They don't sell chicken jerky at the cashier line in Walmart, do they? Chicken jerky is still sold, of course... for dogs.
Cows never did like chickens. They hated the small, silly, feathered fowl that laid eggs all over their coops and rolled about in sand caked with their own droppings. Cows especially despised roosters for waking them up every morning with croaking, off-key calls. And, somehow, in their perspective it seemed that chicken were spared and loved more by humans. It didn't help that chickens appeared to have an entire holiday dedicated to them; Easter.
Naturally, the cows did their best to ruin chickens' lives. They trampled any eggs that rolled astray, not paying care to whether they were of chickens, ducks, or geese. They laughed aloud in their own cow way when any chicken was pulled away to be skinned. When any chicken decided to escape, the cows found it and led it on a wild goose, or should I say chicken, chase, trampling its tail feathers and hurting its wings.
It didn't take long for the chickens to notice this, and they began resenting the cows as much as the latter despised them. Conflict escalated, until it turned to a war. The chickens managed to recruit the ducks on their side, but couldn't convince the geese. The cows managed to form an alliance with the pigs, who'd realized that they felt the same way.
What happened to the farmers?
Oh, please, don't ask.
Species (chicken, duck, cow, bull, or pig if part of war) (horse, cat, dog, mouse, rat, mule, donkey, wild dove, goose, goat, or sheep if neutral):
Side (chicken, cow, or neutral):
Rank (private, general, captain -limit of 8-, general -limit of 8-, adviser, spy -limit of 8-, [insert military rank here], neutral, traitor -yes, that's a rank, limit of 8-):
: No OP characters, please.
: I might tweak the personality of your character a bit to fit the Trollfic.
: If you make a rank, make it well. Please don't make a spy just for the sake of making a spy; make it an actual spy, if you catch my drift.
: I am using 'chickens' as the plural form for chicken. If you're not okay with that, although I can't see why you wouldn't be, please let me know.
: I might hire a fellow Trollfic admin-- perhaps even a Trollfic writer. This may not ever happen. If it does, it'll occur randomly. Please don't volunteer.
: You are free to make this into a fandom. Probably won't happen, but just thinking ahead here...
: Put "Chicow" in Other in white ink.
: Put all other things about your character in Other.
: Please be patient if I don't post a new chapter immediately the next day. Writer's block happens.
