If anyone out there has some skill with electronics we have an exhibit that makes chicken clucking noises hooked up to a motion sensor and chip. It came unplugged between the sensor and the chip and we cannot seem to get it to work again. It either clucks incessantly or not at all.

It should take someone who knows what they are doing no more than an hour to fix. If you can help let us know.
