Have you ever heard of a migrating chicken?
Well, this one flew all the way from Stowe in Vermont, USA.
His name is Ricardo the Rooster and he was found waiting to take off from Stowe Fabric & Yarn last month. I’ve seen these log cabin chickens many times on the web. This one was made by Deborah Stresing of Log Cabin Designs, Danville, Vermont, USA.
Ricardo was exhausted when he arrived here. He was so surprised to find a lady friend in the cold North-East of England.
They got clucking to each other…
… and found they had quite a bit in common
And then they fell comb over scratchers in love!
The inevitable has happened
Those cheeky chickens have stolen my new fat quarters from Montreal (and also my eggs). You didn’t really think they’d laid those ginormous eggs …. did you?
As you may have guessed, I made Mrs Chicken myself. I just had to make one. The only trouble is….. and please don’t mention this to Ricardo ….. Mrs Chicken has wanderlust. As soon as this brood has fully fledged, she is off to pastures new. She doesn’t know where she is going. In fact, she cannot even get a passport because she doesn’t have a proper name.
This is where you come in
If you would like to win Mrs Chicken, all you need to do is:
1. Agree to make another chicken and give it away on your blog within 4 weeks of receiving your prize. Include a link back to ohsewtempting.wordpress.com so that all the chickens can appear in the Chicken Run Gallery which will include a link to your blog if you have one.
2. Leave a comment below to say what you would like to call Mrs Chicken, which country she would be going to and why she would feel at home there.
Mrs Chicken is made from very small scraps of fabric and a small amount of stuffing. She is 3.5 inches tall and stuffed with polyester batting. Please do not stuff your giveaway chicken with foodstuff or plant material as it may not be allowed into the country you are sending to.
It is important to let me know about every chicken that is hatched. Let’s see how many chickens we can get in the Chicken Run Gallery by the end of 2014.
This giveaway is open to everyone in the whole wide world until the end of 25th January (local time) and will be drawn using a random number generator. Numbers will be allocated in the order that comments are received. If I reply to any of the comments and the random number generator chooses my number, it will be redrawn. Mrs Chicken needs a holiday
