P.S. In seriousness, are we thinking chocobo or something?

Dragon 323 had stats for chocobo- Large rather than medium, CR 2.

Sounds funny. Maybe give it 4 hit points.

Only if someone with the Chicken Infested flaw can take a feat to upgrade his chickens to Dire Chickens.

These would be great with some orcish farmer as their leader. Perhaps a 1st level encounter.

Wow. I made my own dire chickens years ago. They weren't actually chickens, "dire chickens" are just what adventurers nicknamed them. They were medium sized roughly chicken shaped flightless forest birds that killed gnomes and halflings when they could catch them alone.

Basically, just take a dire hawk, get rid of its flight, and give it the ability to glide for 1 round at a time (so it can fly, but has to land at the end of the round).

Dire Fighting Chickens are fitted with metal spurs which cause an additional 1d4 points of damage.

Note: a blacksmith or armorer can make these metal spurs relatively easily and cheaply and they are fitted over a chickens own claws.
