Cocorico! Monsieur Poulet ([ko.ko.ʁi.ko mə.sjø pu.lɛ], "Cock-a-doodle-do! Mister Chicken") is a 1977 Franco-Nigerien road movie by "Dalarou", a pseudonym for Damouré Zika, Lam Ibrahim Dia and Jean Rouch.
Cocorico! Monsieur Poulet was filmed in and around Niamey, Niger on 16 mm film in 1974. Much of the film was improvised. Damouré Zika used the money he made from Petit à petit (1970) to buy the Citroën 2CV featured in the film.

Lam, owner of a home-built Citroën 2CV named “Patience”, and his apprentice Tallou, drive into the countryside to buy chickens to sell in Niamey. Damouré, an opportunist, joins them on this one-day trip. They encounter adversity, a "demon", and are forced to make multiple crossings of the Niger River.
