This is another of those replica vintage toys that your G'pa P.M. made in his workshop. He was forever coming up with something unique and different. The chicken's heads are attached to fishing line and a lead sinker underneath the paddle. As you shake the paddle, the heads move up and down as if they are pecking at the kernels of corn. I wonder how long a child in today's age of electronics would be amused by playing with this toy of yesteryear !! I love having all these reminders of the people that have been so much a part of my life, so things like this are incorporated into collages on walls in my home. This one is on a kitchen wall.
