Introduction: Making a Crossy Road Chicken

About: I've always been a very creative person and a self confessed video gaming geek. I'm a husband, father, artist and blogger

Here's how I made a wooden chicken from the popular mobile game Crossy Road. I used scrap wood for this project, mostly MDF.

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

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.
