    A organization I am involved with is sponsoring a St. Patrick's day pet walk, and they wanted pictures of a green chicken to advertise with it! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! (Gunter sure loved posing for me). All I did was mix food coloring and water in a spray bottle, then let him outside for an hour or so to preen and dry.

    I love Gunter in green. Did you make the little Leprechaun hat for him?

    Yup! It is just some craft foam sheets and part of a paper towel roll!
