Alektorophobia - Fear of chickens

My fear of chickens is not extreme, I don't freak out when I see pictures of them or anything like that. It's just if a chicken is even just ten yards away from me I start running as fast as I can in the other direction of the chicken.I have friends with pet chickens and they always laugh at me for being scared of their chickens. I'm not so scared of chickens when they are in cages but I would never touch them by choice.

The reason I'm afraid of chickens is because when I was younger my grandparents hap a small chicken coop. It was always my chore to go collect the eggs from the chickens. But when I had to reach under them to get their eggs, every time the mother hen would peck at me or I would be attacked by the rooster named Elvis.

Now they have replaced the chickens with goats but I still share a hate for all chickens.
