Dont make the mistake of thinking about why they had to kill the chicken
I could understand why a man who was having sex with a hen might have to try to kill anyone who happened to see them in the act. I could certainly understand why news of this would then cause everyone in town to be less than polite to the aforementioned chicken fucker. I could even understand why a person would have to hang themself after this sort of news spread around town. What confused me for some time was why the townspeople felt the need to kill the chicken.
Upon realizing the answer, I finally understood that there are some things in this world that you are better off not knowing.
