There are 5 chickens whose beaks are pointing down, ready to peck their food. This a small wooden ball attached to 5 strings that hangs from the bottom of the paddle. You grab the wooden handle and to make the chickens peck their food you slowly twirl the paddle in a circular motion. This makes the ball swirl around on the bottom of the paddle and the chickens go up and down and peck their food in the center of the board! The chickenpaddle is 5" in diameter and 2,5 inches wooden handle. Very fun and addicting for kids and adults!
