Cockatrices are weak creatures, but they possess the power to turn you to stone with their gaze. Touching a dead cockatrice with bare hands is sudden death if you're not resistant to petrification.


Do not hit cockatrices with bare hands. Use a mirror shield to reflect their gaze. Carry clay lumps to counteract hardening if you are gazed upon. If you have gauntlets, pick up the dead cockatrice and wield it as your weapon. Its touch will stone other creatures. Do not pick up a dead cockatrice without gloves.

If you eat a cockatrice while not resistant to petrification, you will die instantly.
