This cute chicken makes a great present for a young child. Its quirky shape (based on a tetrahedron shape) makes it a chicken with character! As your chicken takes shape it will develop its own unique character with glimpses as each new feature is added. First the beak, then crest and the crazy tail, not to mention the knees; each adds something unique. This is a very individual chicken! Workign with simple shapes, this project is not difficult to complete. The detailed instructions include photos and diagrams to guide you at each stage and your chicken can be surveying the scene in a couple of hours or less. PS - The inspiration for this cute chicken came from unusual sources - a tetrahedron pincushion and a pair of cotton gloves.......... who knew that such unusual things could inspire a new style of chicken!
