The napping chicken

This chicken was on the grass motionless, with its head down and legs sticking out.

When the owner poked at it, it remained motionless.

In the Chinese zodiac, there are twelve animals for a 12 year cycle, and the rooster is the last one of the cycle.  It is said that when the Jade Emperor in heaven asked the animals to come for a meeting, the rooster was late because it took a nap on its way to the meeting.

Perhaps napping is in the chicken’s genes.
