Creating your own Crossy Road Chicken Out of Wood (MDF)

Want to create your own wooden Crossy Road Chicken but don't know where to start?  
The YouTube video below will help you get started with making your own.  Or view the Instructables page.


I didn't have any measurements for this when I made it, I just winged it, (pun intended).

How to make your own Crossy Road chicken
Real life Crossy Road chicken made out of wood
I started with the body, using an offcut of MDF which was 3x 18mm glued together from an old project (total MDF block 5.5 cm). (body 5.5 x 5 x 11 cm) (tail 5.5 x 5.5 x 3.5 cm) (wings 2 x 2 x 5.5 cm)

The cock comb (top part 2 x 2 x 3 cm)

Beak (2 x 2 x 2.5 cm) bottom part (2 x 2 x 1.5 cm). I made these parts as one segment.

The feet were cut out using 12mm MDF, its basically a capable A, (see images). Each foot (2.2 x 4.5 x 1.2 cm)

I used 1 x 1 cm wood for the legs. counter sunk into the feet and rounded the top half into a dowel (Each leg approx 8 cm) showing only 3.5 cm. I drilled into the chicken body part to sink the legs in like a dowel.

Once I had all my parts ready I primed and painted using acrylic. When this was dry I used super glue for the cock comb and beak, plus PVA for the legs.

I then finished with the eyes using a black permanent marker pen. The eyes are level with the beak and about 1/4 of the way in.

Cluck...
