The Schleich figures are modelled with attention to detail, hand-painted with care, and provide educationally valuable playtime. Right at the crack of dawn, the cockerel hops up onto the roof of the chicken coop and crows. As the first rays of sunlight appear, the hen comes out too. She starts to scrape at the ground and peck for seeds, when cheeping noises can be heard from the coop. The roof is folded open to reveal the wonderful secret hidden inside: chicks have hatched from the eggs!
