A Different Kind of Chicken

We have a few token barnyard chickens - they are more lawn ornaments than anything else.  But I am always grateful when I get my fresh eggs out of the coop.  Just recently I discovered a fun German felting website www.filzkram.de and here is my wet felted rooster who emerged from the instructions on Gabriele Mazaracis' "filzanleitung" page.  I'm very excited about making more toys as well as combining my love of wool and wood!
