The good kind. You know, with little marshmallow candies shaped like chicks baby birds? Built by Kyle Ringgenberg:

In the spirit of Easter, I’ve designed and constructed an audio-animatronic “Peep” Show. This is inspired by a long-running pun amongst of group of friends of mine. Total part count: 10 Servos, 29 LEDs, 1 Arduino, 1 Audio Decoder IC, 1 Push Button, 1 0.5 W Speaker, ~650 Lines of Code, 3 Sheets of Foamboard, 5? of Balsa Wood, 3? of Dowels, 25? of Wire, & 11 Peeps.
