Item #: SCP-XXXX
Object Class: Safe Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a standard circular livestock containment cell with radius 5metres (16.4 feet) within Site-██. A barrier zone of 30m outward from the perimeter of the containment cell is to be maintained when SCP-XXXX enters its active state.
Any personnel wishing to research SCP-XXXX are required to undergo psychological evaluation and submit a research request that must be approved by . Under no circumstances is a researcher to enter the barrier zone when SCP-XXXX is in its active state.
Approximately every 13-14 hours One D-Class personnel must be exposed to SCP-XXXX for a period of 30-60 minutes. During this period the D-Class must read from provided material to “feed” SCP-XXXX.
Description: SCP-XXXX is a domestic chicken with an appearance consistent and similar to that of a normal instance of Ayam Cemani.
Blood samples taken from SCP-XXXX indicate no abnormalities in its DNA. SCP-XXXX offspring do not maintain anomalous characteristics. SCP-XXXX does not exhibit any normal functions of a chicken besides the laying of eggs.
SCP-XXXX will enter an active state approximately 13-14 hours after it is last “fed”. During this active state SCP-XXXX will begin to “steal” vocabulary from anyone that speaks or within an 11m radius. After “stealing” the words, SCP-XXXX victims will find themselves no longer able to reproduce the words by any means whether writing, talking or signing. Attempts to introduce the words back to victims have yet to be successful.
During the active state SCP-XXXX has been observer to be distressed and will pace throughout its paddock looking for sources of sustenance.
When SCP-XXXX is fed, it will no longer steal words within the radius and will enter its dormant state. During its dormant state, SCP-XXXX is able to reproduce any words it has stolen in the past. So far it has been able to type, write and talk using stolen words.
So far, SCP-XXXX has been observed to replicate any language it is provided with. It is unknown how SCP-XXXX can accurately reproduce the grammar of its languages or how it is able to distinguish between languages.
If SCP-XXXX is not fed within 10 minutes of entering its active state, the radius of effect increases by 0.0025m per second.
