A friend of mine was over recently and wanted to be in with the chickens. No big deal. The aviary is about 5,000 square feet and 14' high, so there's plenty of room to feel as "one" with the birds without crowding or scaring them. In fact, they love when people come in because we usually have something to eat. I pet them here and there and, while I only rarely pick them up, they are very docile and quite friendly. Anyway... the rooster was making a chuckling-type sound and it was kind of funny, so my friend decided she would try to emulate the sound. She did it perfectly! And then the moment she turned her back, the rooster jumped her. Zip, bam, boom and it was all up her front and halfway down her back. So, yea. Moral of the story: if you hear a rooster making noises and think it would be cute to emulate those same noises...you'd probably be better served to just put a sock in it. PS. If you choose the last answer in the poll above, the rooster wasn't "attacking" you, as it were.
