An oral story of a bird who discovers he's much more than a chicken.
An eagle’s egg is placed in a chicken’s nest. When it hatches the hen treats the eagle as a chicken and the eagle behaves as a chicken. Other birds tell him he is an eagle but he insists he is a chicken until one day he opens his wings.
