Jester's Rod (3.5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
|Body Slot:||— (Held)|
|Aura:||Moderate; (DC 19) Transmuation|
At first glance, this is a Rod of Wonder. Upon closer inspection, however (spellcraft DC 20) the Rod is indentified as what it truly is: a Jester's joke that will turn into a live chicken in the hand of the wielder the first time it is activated.
The process can be reversed (only to repeat when the rod is activated again) by expending a 0th-level spell slot into the Rod (or chicken as the case may be).
