I just made these little chickens for a very dear friend who is about to welcome two little ones into the world. They are made of some super-soft vintage blanket wool my mom gave me and have a rattle inside. I've been thinking about REAL chickens a lot and I'd really like to keep a few in our backyard. I keep thinking I'll get serious about it when our backyard is in order but that just never seems to happen! Maybe this summer?
