In Chapter Three, Wang is concerned that there will be no woman with his wife when she gives birth, he is concerned that the baby be a "man," and he is concerned after the birth that everyone know he has a son.

"We shall have to buy a good basketful of eggs and dye them all red for the village. Thus will everyone know I have a son!"
