|May I introduce the Baby Chicks...|
|who would like you to meet their Mama, Ms Hen.|
|Most days, they hang out in their cozy nest and cuddle. You would too, if you were made of a sweater.|
|But if Mama Hen has a bunko date, sometimes Uncle Baby Doll comes by to babysit. No TV and no girls, Baby Doll.|
|Mostly, they just endure squeezing, squawking and the occasional kiss fest. All wings are intact so far.|
Chicken template (used for Mama Hen) from Martha. Baby chicks are scaled down to 60%, with combs and wattles omitted.
Sweater material came from an enormous Fair Isle capelet that I adored, but just couldn't pull off.
I like it much better as poultry pets! The nest was made from some twiggy, branchy stuff at Michael's,
wound up in a circular pattern and secured with twig-looking wire ties.
Beautiful green baby blanket is from Kristen :)
