Calico Chicken ~

Some of my favorite people have been...
well, um....
there was Frank, the super-large Black Rooster,
that when Hannah was little, described as an... um, fluffy woman
...wearing a black dress and red hat to Sunday Meeting....

then there was Peep,
our first white Leghorn who traveled with us from CT down here to VA...
she lived for almost 6 yrs and laid a beautiful brown egg daily...
and who could forget
Little Bit ~
"bitties" as he was lovingly nicknamed...
the tiny Bantam rooster who would rather perch on my head,
fall asleep in my lap or greet our guests ~
then hang out with the other chickens....
yes, they come & go and leave little
Chicken Scratches on our Hearts...
SO ~
I've decided to make little Calico Chickens
for those that cannot have a 'real' chicken....

made from assorted civil war era reproduction calico's
in blues, browns, reds & creams....
an Original design from
Notforgotten Farm

each Hen measures approx. 10" long, from beak to tail...
stuffed with Old, Clean Rags for a nice heavy feel....
hand-dyed Shirred Wool combs, and "penny" wattles...
embroidered eyes.....

each one is $14.99 plus shipping and signed/dated....
...available in my etsy shop
or email me here at
these will also be available in my shop for our
Spring Open House~

remember that you saw them here first AND
"a house without a chicken is like eating an egg without salt...."
Blessings from the Farm...

Love the calico fabrics and the box they are in. I made one last year, a bit bigger and sits on my frig.
