I recently moved to a new home and was working on putting in my flower beds - and putting up bird houses for the blue birds. Easter was around the corner and I wanted to design an Easter chick - which was the first but then I decided to change his color and legs to make peeps colors - and to not just be a chicken! I love Chicka Chickah (say that like Yello's "Oh Yeah" song) The tail feathers will always be perfectly placed since they are done while you are making the body! My testers loved that!
