This bird is 20" tall, 15" long, and weighs 2.25 #. He is cartonnage, and weighs more than earlier roosters because of many more layers of feathers. He also contains several ounces of metal scrap in his body cavity, to improve his balance and stability. His shape and colors are similar to the Rhode Island Red breed of chicken, and his name is "Rhode Island Red Hobgoblin". Each rooster has taken nearly a year to complete due to the complexity and the drying time of various layers.
