    No.. Not a real chicken.. My snow hen! [​IMG]


    She lays four eggs a day. I think I could be on to something with this one [​IMG]

    Love it! I made one of these, too. I used tail feathers that my hens had shed. It's in the deep freeze right now.... Ironic, huh?

    You didn't take a picture did you? I'd love to see it :D Give me some ideas. I used nails for my hens eyes LOL

    My birds ruined it pretty quickly. At least I got a couple cute pictures though.

    I'm sure your chickens were just pointing out the pecking order. They probably feel a little threatened by her laying four eggs a day! Love it!

    I have pics, but they are on a phone, so bad quality. I will have to go out to the freezer and take some. Nails were a good idea for eyes, and I love the carrot beak! I couldn't find anything, so I ended up using grit for eyes. [​IMG] My inspiration struck whilst out caring for the chickens in 20 degree weather, and I nearly froze my fingers making the snow chicken with bare hands.[​IMG]

    Thanks! Took me 20 minutes. I stole the carrot from my bunnies [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Good point! That's just what they were doing I bet!
    LOL Yeah, that was my original plan was grit for eyes, but it wouldn't stick. It was so warm out today when we made her, so my fingers didn't suffer too much :D

    That's so cute! I will have to do that sometime. You've inspired me! :)
    I've never seen a breed of chicken that lays multiple colors of eggs, the snow hen will have to be the first! :p
