    I have always wondered about the translation of this word for many years. While I was stationed on Guam I was at the beach with some friends, some of whom were Japanese nationals, when a storm rolled in quickly. I turned to my friends and said we need to Hiyoko now! The Japanese wife of my friend told me that it was a good idea to act like a chicken and run. Later she told me she was surprised that I new the Japanese word for Chicken and used it correctly. I later found out the word actually refers to a chick and not a full grown chicken.
