Our chickens come as a birdhouse with a hole (typically used by wrens) or without a predrilled hole (please specify) is completely crafted from gourds. If you choose the chicken as a birdhouse, it will come with an attached leather cord for hanging in your tree or whereever you decide to position it. The body is a pear shaped gourd and the nose and comb are cut from pieces of gourds left from other projects. Each chicken is completed with acyrlic paints and finished with a polyurethene. Just like most of our items the chicken has its own personality and because of the uniquiness of the gourds no two will be exactly alike and all dimensions listed are approximate sizes. We currently offer the chicken in burgandy, green and yellow. All combs and upper body is white with feather detailing in various creams, browns and golds.
