At last I desired something to eat out of my own canoe; but he ordered me a chicken, and some excellent wine, and then directed that I should be put to bed in a very clean cabin.
Наконец я попросил, чтобы мне принесли чего-нибудь поесть из запасов, находившихся в моей пироге. Но капитан приказал подать мне цыпленка и отличного вина и распорядился, чтобы мне приготовили постель в очень чистой каюте.

For reasons he could not imagine, in his mind’s eye he saw not Jim’s naked corpse in the chicken house, among the cackling hens, but instead the senator at a press conference, waving the photo of Marcus Pipp and demanding a court-martial.
По причинам, которые он не мог себе и представить, перед его мысленным взором возник не обнаженный труп Джима, лежащий среди кудахтающих куриц, а сенатор на пресс-конференции, размахивающий фотографией Марка Пиппа и требующий отдать его под трибунал.

Then the carrot-haired ruffian picked up the chicken by its leg and hit Poplavsky a terrible blow across the neck with it, so violently that the carcase flew apart leaving Azazello with the leg in his hand.
Затем рыжий разбойник ухватил за ногу курицу и всей этой курицей плашмя, крепко и страшно так ударил по шее Поплавского, что туловище курицы отскочило, а нога осталась в руке Азазелло.

In that corner of the yard was a roughly made chicken-run, perhaps a profitable hobby of one of the cooks.

Varvara Petrovna pounced on her like a hawk on a chicken, seized her by the hand and dragged her impulsively to Stepan Trofimovitch.
Варвара Петровна схватила ее за руку, как коршун цыпленка, и стремительно потащила к Степану Трофимовичу.

He instantly settled himself at the other end of the sofa and fell upon the chicken with extraordinary greediness; at the same time he kept a constant watch on his victim.
Он мигом устроился за столом на другом конце дивана и с чрезвычайною жадностью накинулся на кушанье; но в то же время каждый миг наблюдал свою жертву.

We are caught in an interesting chicken-and-egg problem: SetLongevity must be available at any time, yet it has to manage private storage.

The old joke was that a vaudun and a Left-hander would both kill a chicken—but the vaudun would eat the chicken afterward.
Ходила такая шутка: какая разница между ваудуном и левшой? Оба убивают курицу, но ваудун ее потом съедает.

Mabel Werts, the unhealthy fat of old age hanging doughily on her bones, is sitting down to a broiled breast of chicken and a cup of Lipton tea, the phone by her elbow.
Мэйбл Уэртс, на чьих костях обвис нездоровый старческий жир, садится съесть вареную цыплячью грудку и запить ее чашечкой липтонского чая, телефон же занимает место подле ее локтя.
