Alektorophobia: The Fear of Chickens

Alektorophobia is the fear of chickens. This fear can be of a live chicken, uncooked chicken or a fear of the feathers or eggs of a chicken. Alektorophobia is caused by a traumatic event that involved a chicken. If someone has been chased or pecked by an angry chicken then it would be possible for them to develop this phobia.

This phobia can be mild to severe. A person may fear uncooked chicken, but still be able to be around live chickens or they may be terrified of live chickens, but still be able to eat the chicken. The most severe case of Alektorophobia would be a person who fears anything that has to do with chickens and cannot even look at or touch a chicken in any form.
