Cucky (クッキー), known as Chirps in the West, is one of the animal friends imprisoned by Dr. Eggman for use as "organic batteries" for his badnik army. Cucky is a small white chicken.

According to the original Western Sonic lore, Chirps was inadvertently responsible for teaching Sonic the Hedgehog how to perform a spin attack[1]. While learning to fly, he tumbled head over heels out of his nest. Sonic teased the bird by imitating him, but gathered so much speed he was able to burrow into walls[2].
