Chicken Balls

Recently, we found this delightful set of chickens. (roosters? whatever). The first one we lovingly dubbed the “pack chicken”. Kind of like pack mule, but poultry style. This poor bastard was loaded down with different dispensers of sorts, although at least a few of them were unfortunately placed. It appears that these two were meant for a table setting.

From another angle: Rather “prominent” placing of the salt and pepper shakers.
those don't look like chicked breasts to me
Ok, so I get that the this poor guy is responsible for holding all of the condiments, but what about his partner? What the hell does he do? Unfortunately you can’t see it well by the photos, but his sides were peppered with holes. If anyone knows the purpose of this, please enlighten us because we haven’t figured it out and just think he’s letting his "well endowed” friend do all the work.

Kim says: Dude what in the hell is this?! I'm guessing a pair of salt and pepper shakers and maybe oil and vinegar? Can you imagine directing a guest to the salt by saying "Just grab the chicken's left ball??"
Lisa thinks: Maybe the one that is peppered with holes is for holding the holy water you might want to sprinkle on your guests after forcing them to shake salt and pepper out of a rooster's balls;)
