Default Bilingual chickens & roosters

I wanted to share with everyone a bit of information that I have been pondering over.

Roosters and chicks are bilingual. In english a rooster says Cock-a-doodle-doo and chicks say peep peep. We all know that. Well, In spanish roosters also say Ki-kiri-ki and chicks say pio pio. Our chickens are smarter than we think.

I knew this. My boyfriend is Dutch and I thought he was insane when he said roosters say kukeleku (coo-ca-la-coo.) Our hens were terrified whenever he'd yell coo-ca-la-coo they'd all run like a bat out of hell to the coop. It became a bit of a game.

I even wrote a silly article about it. http://theophanes.hubpages.com/hub/Bilingual-Roosters-They-Exist
