Mr. Staccato
Spent many carefree hours hunting clues with the Hardy boys and defending Redwall Abbey.

As you may have guessed from the title, one of these chickens has a problem with not interjecting in the middle of the story and it's not the dad. The book is comical but also has some negative behaviors I didn't appreciate, including the little chicken promising multiple times not to interrupt and the father rewarding the poor behavior.
