Stick Chickens

One of the things i love to whittle is Stick Chickens, I've not made any for a while and indeed, the one in the picture is one i made some time ago but it serves to illustrate what a Stick Chicken is, the rooster tail on it is awful though, that's what you get for using a fresh cut stick, slightly seasoned is far better as it allows you get better curls.

So if you are at a loose end and have a small pocket knife with you, why not try carving a Stick Chicken?, they are great things to carve, as they don't take that long to do, but look good when they are finished, in fact if you go to the woods i use and look carefully, you might just see a few Chickens perched up in amongst the branches on the trees and bushes.
