I cannot figure out for the life of me when is it "mwekundu" and when is it "vyekundu" and when is it "chyekundu" or whatever. Just like "yangu", "changu", "wangu" etc.

it's dependent on noun classes. Check out the notes under the Masterpost

That pronunciation of chicken sounded like "keykey" not " kookoo"
