    Yes, it's Australian slang for chicken. Applies to roosters too, if my guess is correct.

    From Urban Dictionary:

    1. chook
    Aussie slang for "chicken." Also, "chookie."

    2. chook
    One who has the characteristics of both a Chode and a Mook. These people are often called "Tools" but such a title is hardly harsh enough to describe the caliber of person you are often dealing with. An especially Lame, or undesirable person who is so self-centered and arrogant, they can't seem to tell their A** Hole from the Grand Canyon.

    That guy is such a Tool he's surpassed all others. He's officially become a chook.


    3. chook
    An Aussie slang word for chicken that's commonly used as a 'nice insult,' especially when somebody has done or said something really obviously retarded that's only worth laughing about. Similar to that of a 'dag.'

    Morgan: I got hit by a bus yesterday
    Ted: oh yeah, what happened?
    Morgan: I was standing in the middle of a road
    Ted: ha, ya bloody chook


    So I think Buff is correct (had to happen sooner or later) doesn't necessarily mean female....sorry yappy (not)

    A cooked chicken can also be called a hot chook from a takeaway store.

    I have never heard chook used as in a tool.(silly,idiot dag etc) Thats "you turkey" normally. Chooks as in your chickens in the backyard are usually girls. Roosters are still roosters. Slang can vary from the different states here too.
