Found in an antique stall in a market in Goa

This piece is shown about lifesize. It's carved out of fairly hard soapstone.

Here's the deal. I know what this object is and what it was used for. The guy who was selling it confirmed my suspicions.

Do you know what it is? Leave your answer in the comment to this post.

hey, i think it's a chicken, a symbol of good soil for planting (i guess) maybe it's a duck. either one.
