In Chapter 40, of Walk of Two Moons, Sal receives the gift of a chicken from Ben. The Chicken's name is Blackberry. Explain the irony in Ben's gift and the name he gives it.

Now i know that Blackberries remind Sal of her mother. Because she is sweet and I also know that she remembers her mother eating blackberries and kissing a tree. And we know that Sal's favorite animal is a chicken. But what I am not understanding is the irony of it all. Please help me figure this out.

  9. You guys are all wrong. Come on! In chapter 32 when mr Birkway was reading the journals, he read 2. One was from a girl who told another girl kisses taste like chicken. One was from Sal's journal and she talked about kissing a tree and detecting a trace of a blackberry kiss from her mother.

  11. All these answers are basically the same and their all wrong. It is that Sal likes the chicken because he likes to feed the chickens.

  13. Everything even remotely related to chickens Is a lie, its because her mother was quite fond of blackberries, and she has a dear mem(e)ory of her mother that included blackberries, I can't remember the memory though
