The cockatrice fiercely attacks anything that it deems a
threat to itself or its lair. Flocks of cockatrices do their
utmost to overwhelm and confuse their foes, and sometimes fly
directly into their opponents' faces.
Petrification (Su): A cockatrice can turn beings to stone with
a touch. Creatures hit by a cockatrice must succeed at a
Fortitude save (DC 15) or instantly turn to stone.
Petrification Immunity (Ex): Cockatrices are immune to the
petrifying ability of other cockatrices, but other petrifying
attacks affect them normally (a medusa's gaze, gorgon's
breath, a flesh to stone spell, etc.).
