Are we talking about cartoon? Real life? A bird born without wings (I mean that is usual for the birds of that species not to have wings)? So are we talking about an animal classified as a bird which physically had no wings? If was the bird able to fly? Fastest = on the ground? Up in the air? If up in the air, fastest in the sense that using its physical attributes he could reach very high speed in flying? Or that he was transported by an artificial engine which allowed the bird to reach that speed? I mean, if the above are correct, we know that ostrich is the fastest bird in the world on the ground...all we need to discover is wheather ostrich is also in the "East" and what is meant by East...

Asia: mainland? Islands? Russia? China? Japan? You said "was": Is the bird extinct? Has its speed been surpassed by another bird?

Did we establish that the bird in question is indeed the ostrich?
"fastest on the ground" = it runs the fastest? does something else the fastest?

Chinese calendar relevant?

Chinese kitchen? Is the bird cooked? It is the only bird not cooked because it was too fast? Is it fast in absolute terms (I mean is it faster also than a human for instance?)? Are there relevant laws about this bird?

Haha, Earnest mentioned in a previous post that the fastest bird on the ground was the ostrich, but your reply didn't really comment on that, so I wasn't sure

Fastest = its cooking time is the fastest? so it always arrives at the table first?
Is this a bird that is commonly eaten in China? In the West? Chicken? Duck? Albatross? Haha

Eggs relevant? Relevant part of the puzzle: when the chicken is cooked? When it is eaten by humans? Digestion relevant? Something like chinese do not digeste a specifc preparation of chicken and run to the bathroom as quick as possible?

Are mascots outside pubs relevant (maybe someone has a chicken costume)?

Is the way in which chiken is sold? In stalls? Do people recognize when it burns? Do they eat it when it burns?

CLUE - The fact that it's fast food, and specifically chicken nuggets, is relevant. Nothing else to do with the food itself is relevant.
