Chicken Head!

Inside View at Four Bar Linkage

    The output of the mechanism which I manufactured is a chicken’s head pecking at the ground. The user inputs rotational motion into a giant drive gear. This gear turns a smaller gear, which in-turn spins a four bar linkage. The linkage produces an oscillatory motion. Attached to the last link is the chicken’s head.

    Whenever the user turns the input gear, the output is the chicken pecking at the table!
