These felted chickens measure about 2 inches high, and can be made in whatever pattern/breed you would like. These are made-to-order to your own specifications! They are made entirely from wool with cotton pipecleaners for legs.

Here are some examples of chickens I have made, starting with Henny Penny from Crowing Hen Farm





My children wanted black children, with my daughter choosing the iridescent, solid black Ayam Cemani chicken





And a Rhode Island Red Chicken





I will moosage you pictures of the chicken in process and before mailing, to ensure you are pleased with your new little chicken!

It will take approximately 1 week for me to custom-make a tiny chicken. If you need it ASAP, moosage me, and I might be able to make it quicker.

    Aw, thank you! They're fun to make, too, and I enjoy the challenge of trying to make them accurate at their tiny little size. The Ayam Cemani was definitely a challenge!

    I give this chicken 10 out of 10 acorns...

    ... and some corn, and some grubs I found in the garden, and a nice handful of vegetable scraps.

    She is the cutest little hen and keeps me company on my desk.  

    I don't know how you did it, but she's perfect!

    These are fantastic, just like your other creations.  I have a lot of respect and admiration for people who can sell their art.

    I want to let you know that Henny Penny has her own photo journal and is posting a photo a day.

    Well... I say the chicken is posting, but it's really muggens here doing all the work.  But Henny Penny is the inspiration and the star of the journal.  

    you may have to click on some of the days to find henny penny.  It's a bit where's waldo.

    My kids and I LOVE Henny Penny's photo journal. It is so cute! They were disappointed when they came to the last picture, and I reassured them that there would be more pictures the next day!

    And, wow, blipfoto seems like a really lovely site! You got so many encouraging, helpful replies on your pictures. It's like a photography equivalent of permies. What a wonderful gem of a site!

    I keep forgetting to post pictures of these little families I made a few months back. They were really fun!



    The rooster and hen were based off of Raven's chickens. Here's a side by side of Zeus!



    And these were some buff orpington chickens. The color was a really fun challenge--I ended up mixing together at least 4 different colors of wool to make the old gold color.



    The tiny chicks were really fun, too! (And really hard to photograph!)

    I've had my felted chooks for a while now.  They get interactions daily - often joining me for whatever I'm crafting or doing that day.



    They are holding up wonderfully well.

    chicken shenanigans





    Considering how much these guys get involved in my photography and filming, they don't show any wear yet.  Still looking great!

    so, um, things happened and I attempted my first stop-motion animation.

    I think it turned out quite well if you ignore the drawing part.

    Hello :D

    I saw your link about YouTube and the pastel ugly chicken - watched it and gave it a thumbs up.

    Then clicked more... and looked over your list of stuff. And at the very end I clicked this permies link for more about your felted handmade items - and here I am letting you know how I got here.

    Many blessings to you and your family- including your chooks 🐤🐥🐓

    It's fun seeing you here! R Ranson's video on making the oil pastel chicken is super fun. Years back, I'd needle-felted her a little version of her Henny Penny chicken, and it makes my heart so happy every time I see Henny Penny featured in her videos. It's like a little "Easter Egg" in her videos!

    I'm pretty sure that Henny Penny was the first chicken I'd needle-felted. She's such a special chicken (R Ranson wrote a little about Henny Penny here). It's really fun being able to make tiny little felted versions of people's beloved chickens ♥.
     
    My first bit of advice is that if you are going to be a mime, you shouldn't talk. Even the tiny ad is nodding:
