    At what point did you put on the eyes? Before or after you saw how the peepers looked on the birds? [​IMG]

    I appreciate your link, but those are actually too heavy. I'll have to make them out of cfaft foam.

    I won't do anything which might have an adverse effect. (other than laughing at their sisters.

    Quote:I put the eyes on before I put the peepers on the girls. There will be more later, at my website.

    This will show how I did it, but use hot glue instead on Gorilla Glue.

    Check out the doll-making aisle at any craft store. There are adorable light-weight straw hats for dolls & teddies that are the perfect size for chickens.

    I can't pass ANY clothing item without evaluating how it will fit one of my chickens....

    Yeah, I would say I'm serious, but I look at them and crack up laughing. See if you do the same:
