aren't those the 7 crows, wich 6 of them are shot down by a celestial archer, because they decided to play all in the same time, and nearly burnt everything?

You're thinking of the "Sun Crows" of Chinese myth, 9 of whom were shot by the Archer Yi, 8 of whom were slain. (the two who survived became the sun and moon)

Anyone who's read about Chinese mythology will have heard about the Sun Crows.

I'm not sure of the whole story - I just received a little snippet that described the physical attributes of the creature. That definitely sounds about right, though. :D

No kidding! Nobody has really explained the three-leggedness, though. I guess it's just a celestial being thing.
