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!
