In The Curse of Monkey Island there is a myth circulating around plunder island about a horrifying demon known as El Pollo diablo(the devil chicken).
It supposedly is responsible for releasing Blondebeard's chickens and is a cause of horror for most of the residents. But the game never seemed to explain exactly what El Pollo Diablo was (assuming I didn't overlook something). Guybrush used the myth to trick blondebeard at one point, but that was pretty much the only time it was used in the plot.
So my question is, was it real? If not, then what freed blondebeard's chickens?
